Twitch is now addressing sexual assault allegations on a case by case basis following a series of sexual misconduct claims.

The live stream platform is now “looking into the recent allegations of sexual abuse and harassment involving Twitch streamers and actions we’re taking,” according to a Wednesday blog post.

Sexual assault victims on the platform can report instances of harassment or misconduct through “reporting tools on each streamer’s channel page.”

While Twitch recognizes its limitations in finding solutions to widespread issues such as sexual assault, the company takes its “responsibility as a service for our community seriously.

Twitch’s commitment comes days its CEO’s pledge to address the platform’s sexual assault victims.
