Twitch says US Army's fake giveaways violated its rules

We learned last week that the US Army's Twitch stream was being trolled by viewers who, instead of focusing on the games or players—the Army has its own esports team—insisted on asking about war crimes. The pointed questions put a spotlight on the dubious (some would say extraordinarily unethical) practice of seeking out recruits from among an audience that contains many young, impressionable gamers, and on top of the "UwU"ing being generally objectionable to many, it turns out the Army may have been outright decietful in its efforts.
