Twitch all-time records: Followers, viewers, most popular games, streamers and more

Twitch is by far the biggest and the most popular streaming platform in the world.

Introduced in June 2011 as a spin-off of the general-interest streaming platform, Justin.tv, the site primarily focuses on video game live streaming, including broadcasts of esports competitions, but is it branching to other spheres as well, including creative work and general chatting.

In its almost 10-years-old history, Twitch remains the dominant streaming platform in the world, when it comes to gaming, and it will likely remain like that for the foreseeable future.

It is a go-to place whether you are into esports, streaming or you just watching your favourite content creator.

When it comes to streaming, Twitch is holding some of the biggest records in the world, so let's see some of them.
