(Reuters) - Discord Inc, a messaging platform for online gamers, said on Thursday it was working with the 'Wallstreetbets' Reddit chat room team to moderate its new server.

Discord said on Wednesday it had removed the WallStreetBets server from its platform for violating its guidelines on hate speech and spreading misinformation.

The Reddit chat room that has driven stock surges for GameStop and other companies will be allowed back on Discord so long as "they improve their moderation practices", a Discord spokeswoman said.

"We have reached out to the moderators to provide them with support and advice", she added.
