Twitch Beats Out Facebook and Amazon in Online U.S. Traffic

Game-focused video streaming service Twitch is now one of the five most popular destinations for U.S. internet users, according to an infographic published by Wall Street Journal and highlighted by Twitch marketing VP Matt DiPietro.

According to the WSJ report, Twitch was fourth in peak U.S. internet traffic share (1.8 percent) for the week ending February 3, 2014. The only services/companies ahead of Twitch were Netflix, Google and Apple. Twitch finished ahead of some pretty popular destination like Hulu, Facebook, Amazon and Valve.

"We are working overtime to scale our infrastructure to keep pace with the growth of the community. That's no small task," DiPietro said. "Thanks to all of you, and your voracious appetite for gaming video, we're really playing in the big leagues, here. And we mean to step up."
