Uploads: They are videos uploaded by the streamers/gamers and will be stored on the channel forever. 

Past Broadcast: If streamers enable the VOD storage on their channels, all their live stream will be published in the section after the stream ends. And usually, the past broadcasts will be stored for 14 days. For Twitch Partners, Prime, and Twitch Turbo users, the storage time is 60 days.

Highlight: A highlight is a segment of content a streamer creates from his or her own past stream. A highlight will stay on the channel infinitely. You can turn a past broadcast into a highlight to save it forever on your channel.
