Twitch and Discord are under investigation in New York after the Buffalo attack

Twitch and Discord are among a group of social media companies being investigated by New York Attorney General Letitia James following the heinous shooting in Buffalo on May 14.

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