Twitch Viewership in 2021
As The Gamer reports, recent viewing time figures only show that massive streaming platform Twitch continues to grow.
The 45 percent growth that Twitch showed at the end of 2021 is actually equivalent to 24 billion hours of viewing time for its users from the abundance of video on the platform.
This year, you watched 25,902,394 hours of Animal Crossing.
That's approximately 700 zillion Bells owed to Tom Nook per second. Or something like that.

Facebook Gaming Viewership Increase
Elsewhere, it is learned that Facebook Gaming has surpassed Twitch in terms of growth, with a 47% increase this year from 2020.
However, it should be noted that the superiority of Meta’s streaming platform doesn’t far outweigh Twitch’s performance.
Although Facebook is growing in terms of growth rate, its growth equates to a cool 5.3 billion hours, which is a far cry from Twitch’s growth of 24 billion viewers.
But even so, it’s impressive progress for Facebook Gaming. Back on October 27th, its views have already surpassed even the YouTube game.
