Data breaches aren't uncommon, but that doesn't mean that they're not a big deal.

This explains why the recent hacking incident involving Twitch quickly went viral. 

The leaked information came from an anonymous source in 4Chan that teased that it was the first of many.

Twitch itself would later confirm that the data breach happened.

Now, audiences have a much better idea about creator payouts, among other things. 

The timing couldn't have gone any worse for Twitch as it's currently in the midst of so much turmoil.

With the hacker promising more is coming, we don't think that Twitch is out of the woods just yet.
