WElcome to the top!

*When reading the report, it’s important to remember:

This showcases only a fraction of the amount of data available on Lurkit. The data set is meant to provide a deeper knowledge of the streaming scene on Twitch. The report is not declaring streams with zero concurrent viewers. The difference it makes on the ‘Hours watched KPI’ is less than 1%. We have cleaned up the data set to only include video game titles. Categories such as ‘Just chatting’ and others are not included as well as table top games. Comparable historical data is discretionary available on request - exclusively to journalists.
