Twitch and Discord Under Investigation in New York After Buffalo’s Attack

Twitch and Discord are among a group of social media companies under investigation by New York Attorney General Letitia James after the horrific shooting that took place in Buffalo on May 14.

Attorney General James says the 18-year-old suspected of having claimed 10 lives in a Buffalo supermarket may have used social media to “discuss and amplify his intentions and actions”, and is therefore launching an investigation that specifically targets Twitch, Discord, 4chan, and 8chan, and what role they may have played in the attack, which police are calling a hate crime.
