While only bigger streamers are at risk from these leaks, Twitch hasn't officially confirmed anything about the leak or the payouts.

Twitch, however, acknowledged there was "a breach," tweeting:

"We can confirm a breach has taken place. Our teams are working with urgency to understand the extent of this. We will update the community as soon as additional information is available. Thank you for bearing with us."
