They say they are reviewing each case and "ensuring appropriate due diligence" in deciding how to handle the situation.
Outside of the legal system, this is the way it should be done.
But they aren't doing what they write. To report someone / harass someone all you need is a throwaway email and finding the report button, report them for sexual content, or racism (Or you create fake-accounts to post racist content on their streams) and tada, auto ban after a certain number of reports with zero recourse for the one hit by it unless they are super famous.

And many of the content creators hit by this are no longer on Twitch to begin with! With Twitch defending these (instigated) bans even... blagh
