Twitch is a streaming platform that at one time seemed to be all about gaming, but other entertainers and influencers have joined the community to forever change what it’s all about. A subsidiary of Amazon, Twitch welcomes everyone from music streamers to broadcasters and anyone with a microphone and a camera.

Even though there is a lot of fun to be had on Twitch, at the end of the day it is big business. Some channels are sponsored while other channels have paid subscribers. Each of these Twitchers have a huge following and they keep their channels highly interactive with viewers constantly commenting, comments so fast a new user won’t know how to keep up.

Ninja would have made the list undoubtedly, but his break from the streaming platform gives these stars a chance to shine.
