- The entirety of twitch.tv, with commit history dating back to its beginnings

- Various proprietary SDKs and internal AWS services used by Twitch
- All other properties that Twitch owns, including IGDB and CurseForge
- An unprecedented Steam competitor from Amazon Game Studios
- Red Internal Twitch SOC Team Tools
