Twitch has only been around for about four years, but they certainly have done a great job building a gigantic, loyal audience, while staying somewhat under the radar of the mainstream tech media. They didn’t, however, sty off the radar of some of the industry heavyweights, as Amazon won a bidding battle last year and purchased Twitch for almost $1 billion.
