Twitch streamers broadcast their activity or gameplay by sharing their screen with fans around the world. Their followers enjoy watching them play their games live, and they build communities around these shared interests and popular games. Twitch has both free and paid versions of the service, which give users access to various features for social interactions, streaming, and storage.
