A couple of weeks ago I joked social media platforms would soon start limiting what you can type into their pane. When writing “it’s okay to be white”, say, you might find the last word simply won’t post.
Well they’re way ahead of me, of course. After last week’s mysterious YouTube outage, users claim the site is now auto-censoring chat
Last night for about an hour, YouTube went dark. The popular video and streaming site came back up, but a number of users quickly discovered the platform run by Google released a brand new auto-censor for live streams.
During The Gator Gamer’s stream, users discovered just how powerful YouTube’s new censor bot was. Many believe the new censor bot was tied to YouTube’s crash yesterday.
