Twitch is undoubtedly one of the most popular streaming services for gamers in the U.S. However; Twitch has just vanished across China. It was the third most popular free app on the Chinese iOS App Store according to CNN. After a 2014 purchase, Twitch became owned by Amazon. However, with this Twitch restriction in China, Amazon is having trouble trying to expand their companies into one of the world's largest economies. Twitch was popular during eSports events in China since many TV channels and online sites weren't covering these giant competitions. However, Twitch would've been expected to run into problems anyhow. With the Chinese government restricting tons of foreign media, it's hard to see what's next for Chinese media.
