Twitch, owned by Amazon, first approves Amazon's anti-union ads then pulls them

Twitch ran advertisements by its parent company Amazon on the live streaming platform that were advocating for Amazon workers to not unionize. Following criticism on social media, the advertisements have been removed and a Twitch spokesperson has stated that the advertisements "should never have been allowed to run" on Twitch as political advertisements are against the internal policies.
