This week on the Gaming Careers podcast we discussed a variety of news from Twitch and YouTube, such as Kai Cenat's record-breaking achievement, Stream Elements' new charity alerts feature, and Discord's new Super Reactions feature for Nitro subscribers. We also discussed Twitch and YouTube updates, including their new features such as Viewer Milestones, Multi-Language Audio, and the Time To Stream Experiment.
On this week's episode, we discuss four of the main platforms - Twitter, YouTube, kick.com, and Twitch. We chat about the changes to Twitter's longer tweets, the impact of YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki stepping down, the potential for kick.com to become a major streaming platform and Twitch's engagement strategies and the channel skins feature.
