Have you ever heard of Twitch? It’s the video service that many people are talking about! And it’s no coincidence that this platform is currently making the buzz. There is a real buzz around this video platform that was launched in 2011 and bought by Amazon in 2014. Here is some information about Twitch.
Who watches Twitch?
Currently, 5 million people connect to Twitch once a month. One million Canadian people would go there every day. Most of them are young adults between 18 and 35 years old. It should be noted, however, that the 11-18 year olds are also very present as they represent 28% of the audience. The audience is mostly male, with 80% of men.
What is Twitch?
Twitch is a live video streaming platform that was bought by Amazon in 2014 and allows anyone to create their own channel. It’s a bit like YouTube, any internet user can sign up and then broadcast live videos. It is very successful, and viewers watch videos for free. They can also interact and comment in real-time. There is a chatroom, which allows the channel’s host to see the messages and respond if he or she wishes. It should be noted that the platform is rather centred around video games and in particular big hits such as Fortnite, Call of Duty, or League of Legends. Video game players are fond of sharing and can broadcast their game live. However, there is also other content, especially around the news. To date, Twitch intends to attract a wider audience and create new categories such as wellness, travel, politics, cooking, and sports.
How to earn money on Twitch?
It is quite possible to earn money on Twitch. To earn money, you must first have a lot of subscribers to your account, in order to monetize. It’s a bit the same principle as on YouTube because Twitch videos are interspersed with ads. It is also possible to work and collaborate with brands. It is also possible to add a link to sell a video game and earn a 5% commission on the sale. At the moment it seems difficult to make a real living on Twitch, but several channels stand out and can generate several hundred dollars in revenue each month.
What about gambling on Twitch?
Why are we talking about Twitch? Because there are many videos about gambling on Twitch. You will find videos with many tips, tricks, and trends of the online gambling world. Thus, you can find quite regularly videos about online casinos, or about trading. These videos attract a very large audience. Moreover, among the 10 most-watched personalities of the Twitch platform, there are two streamers related to the online casinos. These streamers offer affiliate links to online casinos, which entitle the viewer to bonuses or seed money when they first sign up. If the benevolence seems to be the order of the day, one must remain suspicious, and obviously, play the caution card. These streamers can also, and this is where it’s interesting, teach you tricks or techniques to make money or bet smart online!
Twitch is clearly a platform in the making and one that you will probably have to know about in the future. Even if it is less used and less popular than some competitors like YouTube, Twitch has many advantages. Don’t hesitate to discover this platform that is not quite like the others.
