Tech Stuff Corner




This month's Tech Corner features the Twitch App. Twitch is a live video streaming service introduced in June 2011 as a spin-off of the streaming platform Justin.tv. Twitch focuses on video game live streaming, including broadcasts of Esports competitions, music broadcasts, and creative content. Content on Twitch can be viewed either live or via video on demand and is viewed on your phone as an app, or computer. As of May of 2018, the site has 2.2 million broadcasters monthly and 15 million daily active users.
 
I have used the Twitch app for about 6 years now to watch my favorite streamers on a daily basis, and have also streamed video games such as Stardew Valley, Slime Rancher and others! It takes a lot of work and dedication to be a live streamer. While some people stream as a full time job, others stream as a form of second income. As long as you're having fun and playing the games you enjoy playing, you could make it big one day with the same dedication.
