Recent reports indicate that Twitter will make significant announcements next week regarding its live streaming API. The company is expected to open the API to a select group of media companies. The move would allow such companies to directly stream live video to the Twitter platform.
The Twitch API lets developers integrate popular Twitch features, such as live broadcasting, chat and video analytics into their own application. Talk has surfaced that Google is looking to purchase Twitch for $1 billion.
