The purple platform
Twitch is a streaming platform where people (Streamers) offer content to other people (Viewers). In fact, they usually play games on-camera either competitively or for educational purposes or for fun. Also, there is a live chat that streamers interact with the viewers where they can only write and post tiny gifs or emojis. However they can’t send voice messages or post photos/videos.
Moreover, in the last few years Twitch is growing, and more people are approaching the platform. The “Just chatting” category was added where streamers chat, talk about problems or topicality and news or whatever they want. Also, IRL (In real life content), Esports, Creative, Music categories were added for diversity interests. What’s more, viewers can pay a subscription to channels or donate money with ways like PayPal. This way, they support the streamer so they can upgrade their equipment or buy more games to play etc. For example, with a subscription of 3.99€ you can unlock some channel emojis and some channel permissions. Last, you gain the right to text in “sub-only mode” or be part of sub giveaways.
