DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that more than half of the total number of Twitch users are aged between 18 to 34? Despite the popular yet mistaken belief that "gaming is for kids", these numbers still persist, with the percentage bumping up to 73% if you raise up the age range to 49. Impressive, considering that Twitch has more than 15 million daily users with an average of 95 minutes on the website per person. Although this count is pretty massive in and of itself, reports suggest that more than 3/4 of the Twitch community comprises of males with more than half of them aging between 18-34.
Although Twitch can be considered as the best platform for live streaming, it remains without a doubt that to be able to become a successful streamer, one has to invest in a good gaming platform, hardware, and streaming software in order to properly connect with your audience. Despite gaming being the most popular point of interest in Twitch, lifestreams, podcasts, and even music streams exist within the website, effectively giving it a wide variety of ranges that may or may not cater to a wider fan base. Presently, it comes without a doubt that Twitch's numbers will only keep on rising, especially due to their increasing partnerships and promotions.
