TwitchCon Sends Out Noticed About This Year's Safety Measures

Conventions are still reeling from the events that took place in Jacksonville back in August, and TwitchCon is the latest to address security. The company sent out an email notice letting attendees know about their weapons policy as well as making it clear that everyone will be subject to bag searches and screenings. We can't really blame Twitch for taking the added effort, but it should be noted they're not saying much about what a security screen will mean. We have the primary highlights of the info for you below.
