Twitch is an online and a popular service that provides with the option of streaming online live games. It was initiated and launched itself to the public during 2011, and intitally concentrated completely on video games. However, as every innovation requires a development, Twitch also moved itself and expanded it’s usage from videos games to also dedicated it’s work towards music, TV series and talk shows. This streaming service has wrapped around over 2 million users of this streamer. Twitch was further profited by being purchased by Amazon in 2014 and has the highest trafficking on the Internet in North America.
Twitch may have started off in the industry by entirely keeping it’s focus on video games, but appealing and giving the crowd varieties is necessary and thus that’s exactly why it has expanded itself to streaming of live broadcasts and music. The most popular, which does not belong to the category of gaming is the IRL (In Real Life) where streamers simply have a chat with their viewers. Talk Shows is another popular non-gaming option which contains a mix of live panel discussions, talks and debates. Twitch offers you the same amount of quality YouTube offers you, but the only difference is that Twitch has it’s name in the idea of online streaming of videos.
