quick monitoring of some Twitch channels during the Sony conference (2016-09-07) using Twitch api


Variables

  • number of viewers in a given stream
  • number of channels in that stream
  • ranking : position in the Twitch.tv top stream
  • games : League of Legends, World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Destiny, Gaming Talk Shows

Comments:

  • choice is purely arbitrary (I choose some of the top 10, and Destiny because yeh!)
  • There wasn’t a Playstation stream, it was included in the Gaming Talk Shows ; I realized it too late that’s why I’m missing the beginning of the conference
