Twitch, a wildly popular live-streaming platform for gamers, looks to become the next major broadcaster of our lives
Twitch is an online platform that gives video game steamers the ability to make money directly from the viewers they attract. Unlike many traditional content creators that must achieve a minimum size to attract ad buyers and corporate partners, or even YouTube content creators who require YouTube to sell ads on their behalf and sometimes don't see a direct correlation between views and revenues, Twitch streamers are able to form a direct relationship with their viewers and to easily monetize their popularity.
Twitch – a live streaming platform for video games – has gained viewership that rivals CNN and MSNBC. With the help of its parent (Amazon), Twitch has a good chance of becoming the ESPN of Esports.
