Top 12 Twitch Influencers
Twitch is a rather mature live streaming platform, as it was launched in 2011, but it has been experiencing a surge in popularity the past few years, in terms of streamers and viewers. This was particularly the case this year, when Twitch saw an influx of 3.5M new streamers, not counting subscribers. The platform allows you to livestream, but also to watch past broadcasts, without edits.
The platform has managed to strike a balance between its free and paid services, making it easier for streamers to get paid than on YouTube, even offering the possibility to make donations to creators. Many YouTubers have moved to Twitch to livestream regularly, in addition to their YouTube schedule.
This site is an excellent addition for YouTube subscribers who would like to see and know more about their favorite creators. The platform also has a more “intimate” dimension as it offers the possibility of interacting via chat during livestreams. It’s an excellent platform to launch an innovative marketing campaign, especially as partnerships are underdeveloped on Twitch at the moment.
In this article, we’ll discover our selection of 12 Twitch influencers to inspire you!

Maghla did the opposite of Squeezie. With a Twitch channel of more than 500k followers, she uploads past broadcasts and best-off montages on her YouTube channel.

Maghla offers a bit of femininity in this mainly masculine world, and has on top of that impressive mastery of her controller!

He also uploads best-off and replays on his YouTube channel. Not to mention original videos about video games.

With 1.1 million followers, Domingo is a very popular streamer on the platform. For his gaming livestreams, of course, but not only as he regularly offers a podcast where he invites fellow streamers on to talk about video games. He even recently received the great Jamy from the French TV show C’est pas Sorcier (“It’s not rocket science”) for his first time on the Twitch platform!
The young independent streamer offers lots of video games content, and also often has access to early access games. This allows fans to discover a game before it is released, and make them want to buy it.

Bruce is a very specialized streamer, as he is a professional soccer player. He is one of the most successful players in the video game category. He was indeed four-time world champion, three times on FIFA and once on PES. An impressive record of achievement for a player who is still young. Surely a bright future for the gaming professional!
Xari is a very chill streamer who likes to geek out on video games as much as he likes to start a live chat or to watch goofy shows with his followers. A young man who’s gaining traction on the platform, and has even had access to a few game previews, such as for the highly anticipated Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla.
