How to Delete Your Twitch Account in 2020

To say Twitch has taken the world of gaming by storm would be an understatement. What was once a fairly unknown streaming platform, has turned into a service regularly used by more than 50% of gamers while they play. Did you know 350 billion minutes of Twitch were watched in 2017 alone?

It’s inevitable, then, that while the majority of people are using the platform effectively, there are some people having problems. I know that once I’m in the Twitch rabbit hole, it’s not difficult for me to spend 40+ hours a week watching live streams.

As a result, I created this guide on how to delete your Twitch account and help you take back control over your free time once and for all.
