Hi. I'm Emmett Shear, founder and CEO of Twitch, the world's leading video platform and community for gamers. Ask Me Anything!
We're coming up on our 2-year anniversary here at Twitch, after launching at E3 in 2011. The last time we checked in with Reddit was over a year ago: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/ncosm/we_are_twitchtv_the_worlds_largest_video_game/.
I figured it would be a good time to check in with you all again. Ask me anything about the past, present, and future of Twitch (and anything else you like).
I started Twitch because while I was working on Justin.tv, the gaming video was the only content I watched. I've played games my whole life, and my one regret is that the bigger Twitch gets the less time I have to actually play or watch games.
Since this is obviously one of the big questions on everyone's mind...yes, we're expanding capacity in Europe. Three new datacenters going up over the next 90 days. Stockholm, Prague, Paris. In that order.
Thanks everybody, it's been real. I have to bounce, but if I get a chance I'll come back and answer a few more questions later.
