The leaker, who used the #DoBetterTwitch hashtag, claims to have leaked the data in response to harassment raids targeting the platform streamers this summer.

In August, the streamers used the same hashtag to share on Twitter evidence of the hate raids that targeted them, at the time the platform chats were flooded with hateful content.

“Their community is also a disgusting toxic cesspool, so to foster more disruption and competition in the online video streaming space, we have completely pwned them, and in part one, are releasing the source code from almost 6,000 internal Git repositories,” reads the message published by the leaker.
