Twitch Finally Explains The Safety Advisory Council Duties

After a week of some of the craziest stuff ever, Twitch's CEO has finally clarified what its Safety Advisory Council members actually do. It's nice to know that Emmette Shear doesn't agree that "most gamers are white supremacist."

Council members will not make moderation decisions, nor will they have access to any details on specific moderation cases. They are not Twitch employees, and they do not speak on Twitch’s behalf. While we value their opinions and their right to share them, they are independent actors who will have opinions that aren’t shared either by Twitch, Twitch employees, or even by other members of the council.
