A fourth Twitch co-founder, Kevin Lin, is leaving the company. Lin announced his departure in a Medium post on 19th November 2020. Three co-founders Justin Kan, Kyle Vogt, and Michael Seibel have already left the company leaving CEO, Emmett Shear as the only co-founder left in the company.


On his next steps, Lin didn’t reveal much. “I am looking forward to spending time with family and loved ones, some sleep and relaxation, some fitness, and of course, a lot of video games.  I’m so excited to stretch my curiosity and to continue exploring a world where technology is a positive amplifier in our lives. I will build again,” Lin said in his Medium blog.

Shear also expressed pleasure working with Lin and he also didn’t reveal much. “Kevin has been an incredible partner to me and the Twitch leadership team over his 12.5 year tenure and has been instrumental in building our culture and business. We’re grateful for all of the hard work and passion he put into making Twitch what it is today, and look forward to his continued contributions to the industry,” Shear said in a statement.


Lin served as the chief operating officer of Twitch from April 2008 to January 2018. Twitch is a spin-off from, a live streaming site that Kan and Shear founded, in 2011. And despite a big acquisition by Amazon in 2014, the company still holds its own in the gaming industry.
