Twitch is a live streaming platform that allows users to stream their activities in real time.
Twitch streamers can “broadcast” their gameplay or activity by sharing their screens with subscribers or fans who can hear and watch them play live.
Typically, gamers use Twitch to show other users tricks and tips for completing levels.
However, Twitch can be used by anyone interested in lifestyle casting on topics such as music or food.
Streams can last anywhere from 60 seconds to eight hours or longer.
The platform was officially launched in 2011 and has since gained millions of users.
