I, myself, will admit to using my Twitch TV app on my PS4 and iPhone to watch gaming on a regular basis. I watched the drummer from Oh, Sleeper do a 72 hour gaming marathon as he played Diablo III: Reaper of Souls and League of Legends for 3 straight days. Combine that with the total population of our Earth and what do you get? 12 Billion minutes of gaming watched each month and 58% of all users watching more than 20 hours a week.

That is a lot of time and Twitch is taking over. I have found great joy and fun in the app but how far can it really go? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
