YouTube Gaming and Other Streaming Platforms
TimTheTatman isn’t the first Twitch streamer to jump to another platform. Streamers like DisguisedToast headed to Facebook Gaming. Other streamers decided to head over to Mixer. Streamers such as Shroud and Ninja went to Mixer before it eventually shut down. However, one streaming platform that more streamers are headed to is YoutubeGaming. In 2019, CourageJD made his switch to the platform. Just a few months later, Valkyrae also made the jump.
However, more recently there was another streamer who moved to YouTube Gaming. Dr. Lupo, another popular Twitch streamer made the jump just two days ago. With more and more streamers headed to YouTube Gaming, who knows who’s next.
