I had problem logging in last night and did a password reset then but a heads up as I just got this email from them

Re: Twitchv hacked again

Same here, came through as I was playing GTA Online with some across the ponders, tried to get on the site to see what was what but it wouldn't load... Huh
Only ever used the site once to watch a live show that didn't happen (was done via youtube instead), so not really any concern of loss of personal data for me... Smiley

It's a video streaming service that allows people to do live broadcasts on the web, usually gaming related stuff streamed directly from the game itself (Minecraft does this for example), though some use it for live Q&A sessions or just live streams of a bunch of people sat on a sofa interacting with the audience...
