Amazon buying Twitch birthed a lot of amazing features on the platform, including Twitch Prime. However, the purchase also ensures it is impossible to watch Twitch on a Roku device since Roku is a major competition for Amazon.
Twitch used to provide a fully-featured application for Roku devices. But sadly, if you attempt to download the application right now, you will be informed that the app has been shut down. Even if you had downloaded the application before it was shut down, it can no longer be used.
If you ever find a way to still use it, you will most definitely be faced with several bugs and broken features that will simply make things difficult. Not to worry though, to watch Twitch on your TV, it is best to just use another device. See the answer to your How Do I Watch Twitch On My Television Without Using Roku: question:

If you are not aware, even if the Twitch application cannot be downloaded anymore, it is yet to be removed from Roku devices that had it before. Meaning, if the application is already on your device, it could still work, although there will be lots of faults and missing features.
However, this is super unlikely. Recent testing has confirmed that despite the channel being downloaded, accessing it will reveal a message informing you that the channel does not work anymore.
