Twitch

Twitch has become the world's most populous live-gaming destination, with 9.7 daily active users and more than 2 million unique streams a month. Twitch, which Amazon acquired in 2014 for nearly $1 billion, has built a robust community of gamers based on its live-streaming format. In an effort to expand its reach, Twitch opened its platform to allow users to upload videos, a strategic play that places it in competition with YouTube. Twitch also recently launched IRL, a section on its site dedicated to users broadcasting their everyday lives beyond gameplay, with the intention of making Twitch a singular destination for creators who otherwise might be using Facebook Live or YouTube Live.
