Twitch is a live-streaming website. Roughly 11 days ago, some guy started a playthrough of Pokemon streamed on Twitch where the emulator is controlled by comments posted into the Twitch chat.

Twitch is not a person, it is a live stream website. However, one person out a script through Twitch to make it such that the chat input from users would press a button on the game, like if a viewer said "a", the game would press the a button.


so the people watching are the people playing?


Correct. The whole reason it is so popular us because over 10,000 people are playing the same game together.
