Twitch Fought for Net Neutrality On Countable's Platform
Twitch, a live streaming platform primarily used for video game streaming, boasts nearly 8.5 million monthly active streamers and over 140 million visitors each month. As a major source of user-generated content, Twitch faced potential financial difficulties from proposed legislation on ending net neutrality, which would allow internet providers to regulate the content its customers could receive and hurt content suppliers. In order to mobilize its internet-savvy user base around this issue, Twitch sought a compelling way to rally support for net neutrality.
