Twitch has been a part of the very core of the video game industry for a very long time. Not only does it enjoy some of the highest views out of every streaming platform out there today, but ever since the fall of Mixer, it has become the undisputed king of online video game content.
Twitch is currently home to some of the biggest online personalities you will find in competitive video games. From ‘summit1g’ and ‘TimTheTatMan’ to ‘Pokimane’, the list of notorious names never seems to truly end.
