Analyzing The Results

A spokesperson for Solitaired commented on the findings: “Twitch is a unique platform as it is solely dedicated to live-streaming and offers a real-time interactive chat experience. This level of interaction through each live stream is how popular Twitch streamers have built up highly engaged audiences, so it’s great to see such a wide range of celebrities from different backgrounds creating accounts to engage with their fans. It’s interesting to note the range of celebrities, even just in the top ten most followed, from footballers, musicians to politicians; it’s amazing to see how welcoming the Twitch community is to a diverse range of streamers.”  

The research does not include popular channels for Bob Ross, the famous painter, whose channel is run by Twitch. Additionally, hip-hop artists Soulja Boy and Snoop Dog, who each had over 800,000 followers, are not included as their Twitch accounts are inactive.
