Trouble accessing my Twitch account
« on: December 04, 2015, 09:45:34 am »
I tried accessing my Twitch account and it wants me to update my password, the problem is it is linked to a now defunct email account.  I have tried sending a message to Twitch but the same problem happens they want you to type in the email account that you originally registered to.  In the message I asked them to please respond to my new email address, they have not responded, I feel as though I am in a catch 22  :(.  Anyone have an idea, perhaps there is a way to talk to a human at Twitch.

Thanks for the help guys; it was a hassle but I was eventually able to access my account.  They make it extremely difficult for anyone to contact them, and my situation made it even worse.  It took them 2 weeks to send me an email, which asked if I had tried resetting my password (duh!).  I told them in the message I originally sent them, that I knew my password and the email I had registered with.  I had to reply to the email they sent me and provide my IP address, and other details to verify my identity.  The first time I tried this it was rejected.  I read the email they sent me again carefully and realized I had to post my reply in a very specific way.  Then I had to prove I was human, with their ridiculously slanted captchas.  After another 2 weeks, I finally had access to my account again.
