Twitch originally started life as the gaming section on Justin.tv, a general-purpose streaming service created by founder Justin Kan.
However, amongst the rumours that Google is or has bought Twitch, Justin.tv is ceasing all services including its website, mobile apps, and APIs. All users of the site who broadcast video game content are invited to move their accounts to Twitch. Everyone else not streaming gaming content have been asked to find their own alternative streaming solution, such as Google’s own YouTube.
As of today, the Justin.tv website has been replaced with an FAQ.
