In total around 241 billion minutes of video games have been streamed through the service as of February 2017, which is an impressive number indeed. 

It might not yet be a match for YouTube’s 1 billion users, but Twitch’s growth was enough to convince Amazon to buy it for $970m back in 2014.

The power of the playlist: how streaming is changing the way we listen to music

It's 20 years since arguably the most important LP of, well, the last 20 years. Radiohead’s OK Computer re-invented the idea of what a guitar album should sound like.
