This is not the first time for China to ban an global website.
This is the first time that esports have been part of an worldwide event, and so Chinese citizens were disappointed with the lack of coverage, tuning in to Twitch to see the action firsthand.
Many users of China's popular social network Weibo quickly responded to Twitch being blocked in China on Monday.
Twitch, the popular video game-streaming service and a subsidiary of Amazon, has been blocked in China.
Twitch is not the first and will most likely not be the last site banned in China - Facebook, Twitter and YouTube can not be accessed either. The Verge also reports that last month, Twitch was among the top three free apps in China as people were downloading it to watch e-sport matches from the Asian Games.
Other say that Twitch got the ban because the Chinese netizens have been... not quite verbally civil with the gamers from other countries during the Asian Games. China made a decision to block Twitch not longer after the streaming service experienced a surge in downloads in the area.
Japan space rovers lowered to asteroid to collect data
Unlike NASA's Curiosity Rover on Mars, which has six wheels, the 1kg autonomous Ryugu rovers move about by hopping. As it neared touchdown, JAXA tweeted that the control room was silent save for the sound of "deep breaths".
As of September 20th, Twitch's app was removed from China's iOS App Store and Twitch's website is inaccessible.
Still, it was bound to happen soon one way or another, since China has cracked down on similar services in the past.
China is notoriously sensitive about foreign companies providing media content in its territory, unless they agree to the type of stringent censorship local firms do. The Chinese government so far has not issued any official statement.
It may be the case that the Chinese government realized children unable to play online games, or who had used up their allotted time playing them, could load up Twitch and watch someone else playing instead.
The moves wiped tens of billions of dollars off the market value of Chinese internet company Tencent, which has a huge gaming business.
China is no stranger to blocking communications with the outside world in a number of ways.
