Twitch is a live streaming video platform owned by Twitch Interactive, a subsidiary of Amazon.The content is mostly related to video games.

The video streams include broadcasts of people playing video games live.

Many of those playing the games are people with disabilities who are unable to work a regular job but are able to earn through Twitch.

DHHGamers, which stands for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Gamers, is a Twitch community for hearing-impaired gamers who stream and play a variety of online games.

Amazon bought Twitch for US$970m in 2014.

Videos on Twitch are not saved permanently like Youtube. The streamers make money from the donations that viewers make after watching the video streams.
