This platform has been so corrupted lately, I wouldn't recommend this place if you're trying to start your own streaming channel because simply is not well balanced for new creators, the moderators don't care about you

My boyfriend and I spend maybe boring weekends watching Fortnite steamers on Twitch. I think the idea of it is absolutely amazing! Of course, I have my favorite streamers that I watch almost everytime they stream and it gives me endless hours of entertainment (S/O to Hamlinz, Daequan, Nick Mercs, High Distortion, and Dakotaz). Anyway, I refuse to put my card on my account anywhere. Although I'd absolutely love to support some of my favorite streamers, I've gotten countless emails about my account being hacked somewhere in Iraq, Saudi Arabia, or other 3rd world countries. Therefore, I don't trust putting money anywhere near my account. I've been gifted a few subs which is fine by me, but as far as putting you card onto your account, I wouldn't. So, in case some streamers are wondering why the subs are dwindling, not subbing anymore, or why they have so little subs, you may want to contact Twitch about their hacking issues. If they can fix that, Hamlinz will most definitely be my first sub!

After my account was hacked and money was stolen, I reached out to twitch support. After about a week no replies were in my inbox and the problem was not solved.

Tip for consumers: Do not attach payment methods as the security is very weak.

Do not do it! I've called to cancel it 7 times since January, and I'm still getting charged to my card. Predatory company. Stay away!

I love TWITCH but--
Often viewers will stop and look to see what a streamer is showing via the short videos they produce and upload. Twitch has taken this away from the new streamer with the requirement that you must have partner or affiliate status before they can upload videos to Twitch. Twitch please give back the Video Upload feature to the new Streamers!

Twitch allows people who like video games like myself to make some money from playing them along with forming great communities in the process. I strongly recommend trying it out. I also like the bit donation feature as it allows you to support your favorite streamer. As eSports develops into a bigger industry I think that Twitch is amazing. Also, the twitch prime rewards are great too!! P.S. go check out twitch.tv/squatingdog

As an active duty military member working all sorts of hours, I normally drink 5-6 monsters a day. Once I get home I start playing BO4 with friends all around the world. Gfuel allows me to be able to do that without the crash. I was watching Foxygranpayt on twitch and he was drinking it. Told me about it so I figured I would try it. I stopped drinking monsters and I feel great. I've even got my brother and another Navy vet to give it a try.

Twitch has improved a lot in the last few years. It has become a lot easier to look for some oddly specific subjects thanks to the new community features and keyword filtering. Its definitely not just for gaming anymore.

Good platform to watch others stream their gameplay or stream it yourself. Amazing opportunities to support your favorite players or gather a community if you're streami ng yourself.

This site provides (probably) one of the best ways to stream in a large, more interactive way than other sites. (such as YT) Plus, thanks to the application I can actually have an easier way to enhance my gaming experience without having to worry about certain mod installations (namely Minecraft).

Every time I uses twitch and TMS did not wonned, then I see a bub in the recommended stream and I have to click, because I like bewwbes very much. I would like it have either only bubs or have no bewwwbbs at all. I am not an gayy, so I have this as a problem of my life.

Has long has this dam thing is there...
i have been turning around every single time i been tempted to stream...
has a male with 18000+ hours of livestream...
Having my Lifetime follower count be beaten by normal cute girls in 10h of streams
is already one thing.. but thats the virgins fault...
But being ashamed of streaming on a gaming platform that restrict nudity in games yet allows amouranth to not only parade half naked but to promote her nudes on patreon...
on top of using LIVE in her video titles which Counts has misleading title which id mostly get banned for even having no viewers huuuh...
i was warned once for forgetting to switch game quick enough when i had 1viewer in 18h... i mean wtf... i reported amouranth 20+ times with perfectly taken screenshot of her breaking atleast 6 tos in 1 single stream.. yet noooope
shes a disgrace to women in general.. id be butt fkin big burly mans if they were all like this braud
shes single handedly ruined my streaming career has i lose interest every single time...
And please lets not forget at night there is fat males in IRL dancing topless...
so i even accepted getting beaten by male boobs... yet her... her... NOPE
They are Biased, Hyprocrits and Twitch is so overrated...
look carefully 80% of its viewers comes from OFF twitch..
these celebrities are only using the platform..
so it is creative this image of false hopes for smaller people with no social media's
liveme.com has 20xtimes more people then twitch...
and its only midlife crysis women begging for follows 3-4hours a day...
thats where she belongs..
and anyways.. i seen people with 50k viewers there on a daily basis.. so shes dumb has fk to stay on twitch with nerdy broke kids with a top of 3k... that pedo

I don't browse for certain games/media being streamed (which you can do) but I'm able to watch my favorite people (artists, gamers, and friends) do what they do in the comfort of their home or working space, live or past broadcast. The delay is fairly minimal for me, but then there's the occasional invasive ad playing in the middle of the streams. So you could be missing out on something important, which is a little bothersome. Depending on the popularity of the streamer, chat can get a little hectic as well, but you can opt out of chat if you like. Setting up a stream was simple enough last I tried it, and of course they offer a few more options to get your stream going. I'm not sure what the standard is for those options, but so far, it all works pretty well for me.

Tip for consumers: Refresh browser to combat lag, never leave browser if you want chat updated (on mobile) haha

Good place if you like to check out a video game without buying, but the chat on some streams are very often very offensive to new users...

I think it's really good but the livestreams is a little bit delay, but i like it just for gaming cause like YouTube is live vlogs, gaming and other stuff.

I do not have an account with twitch nor have I even heard of twitch and I get a call from my bank telling me that twitch has charged my account 32 times in one day for $1.40. Can not get this handled because they don't have a number you can call. I am very upset. It fraud!!!!..

in fact the service is not only about games, its some times interesting conversations with people from all over the world and can even be a bit educating. on the other hand - lots of hate. Welcome

As a streamer I find Twitch to be much more easy to use than YT. Although in a long run it's probably more profitable to move on to YT some day. Time will tell.

Now the Twitch is giving up a little bit because of YouTube, but for me it still remains the preferred platform because of its community and chat features.

As a viewer, I have greatly enjoyed Twitch. The content is diverse, the layout is practical and interacting with streamers is effortless and lots of fun. However, the game ban policy is pretty arbitrary and unusually stiff for a flexible industry. *Cough* Yandere Sim *cough*

The site made conscious efforts to ban streamers who used sex appeal as the main focus of their show and now values quality content creators through many little gimmicks, some more successful than others. Getting monetization as a streamer is about as difficult as it is on Youtube from what I've heard and policy changes can be destabilizing if you're intending to stream. Some technical difficulties have been reported for audio delay and frame rate. As a viewer, no issues at all! But as a streamer, minor roadblocks lie ahead.

A fun place to spectate many interesting things made by people online, these arent games only. Though some strong language and streamed content may be quite inappropriate for children - take care.

Twitch is a fun community, filled to the brim with entertaining gamers, artists, musicians, and even more. But in reality the only reason I got Twitch in the first place was to watch EVO 2016 lol :^)

As someone that does find entertainment in watching speedruns, I can definitely say without a doubt that Twitch has a lot to improve upon to make it a nice experience. They need to optimize their code to be less resource-intensive as there are times when the website causes any web browser I use to hang. The delay between what the viewer sees and what the streamer is doing is quite detrimental to the live experience. There are other websites out there that are able to deliver a more live experience.
