Twitch Blocked in China

Twitch, the world's most popular streaming website, has been blocked from being accessed in China, according to a report Friday by CNN.

​According to the report, Twitch is no longer accessible to users residing in China. The Twitch app is also unavailable and cannot be found on the Apple IOS App Store in China.

This news comes shortly after there was an influx of Chinese users using this site to watch video games streamed. Last month, the Asian Games, which featured esports, were streamed on Twitch.

Owned by Amazon, Twitch is easily the most popular and well-known streaming website on the internet. ​With the recent explosion of streamers like Ninja and Shroud, Twitch has become the site to go on when it comes to watching people play video games live.
