Further Reading A newbie’s guide to why so many people are watching Twitch A St. Louis Uber and Lyft driver has been kicked off both companies' platforms after the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Friday night that he had been livestreaming his passengers for months without their consent. Passengers have thrown up, kissed, talked trash about relatives and friends and complained about their bosses in Gargac’s truck. He openly advertised his livestreaming on Twitter:I am now LIVE driving awesome people around the St. Louis area! DeBeikes also reminded us that Missouri is a "one-party consent" state for the purposes of recording (California, where Uber and Lyft are based, are not, by contrast). The Uber spokeswoman would not answer Ars’ question as to whether the company felt that non-consensual livestreaming was allowed.
