Too many gamers have this happen to them, I’m not sure about the info in this article and the idea of contacting the police BEFORE something like this happens but all in all this is a problem with games that stream.
If you're a streamer, make an appointment at your local police station. Explain what you do and show them this article. Ask if they can put a note on your address/phone number explaining that you're likely to be swatted.
It might save your life. https://t.co/XNLZhwDlVY
