Touch events are those events that are triggered when viewing the page on a mobile device, like a smartphone or a tablet.

They allow you to track multitouch events.

We have 4 touch events:

Every time a touch event occurs we are passed a touch event:

link.addEventListener('touchstart', (event) => {
