Games are meant to be played, but also admired! While some people enjoy playing them, others love the idea of admiring other gamers, and their legendary skills, as they go about their daily quests and battles. This is what makes Twitch into such a success. This platform presents the world with some of the best gamers out there. Gamers who’re brave enough to reach for the top of the leaderboards, and doing it while streaming their gameplay live, on the internet.
Twitch for the uninitiated
If you’re on a gaming blog for the first time, we’ll try to break Twitch down for you in a paragraph. For the uninitiated, Twitch is the largest gaming streaming platform on the web. Its main competitor is YouTube, but that’s just a large video sharing platform. Twitch is 100% about gamers, their live streams, and legendary moments from their adventures that are broadcasted on the web.
Twitch is a streaming platform for gamers of all sorts and ages, with live streams from the bedrooms of legendary players, to those from the most famous esports events on the planet. There are more than 3 million streamers on Twitch, as well as 15 million daily users, according to the platform. Twitch is just a tad more famous than YouTube Gaming, based on the number of daily views.
