Twitch launches "TwitcheESPORTS" Twitter Account
Twitch has created a new Twitter acccount called "@TwitcheSports" which has already attracted a wide variety of followers including Dutch StarCraft pro Manuel "Grubby" Schenkhuizen. It has acquired followers rather quickly, going from ~700 this morning to over a thousand this afternoon alone.
At this time there has been no real content merely the mysterious phrase "Things will go here" underneath the Twitter profile picture.
It is currently unkown if the new followers of @TwitchESPORTS stumbled upon it by happenstance or are somehow involved with whatever this new initiative is. There has been much speculation around the account as to whether this represents some kind of content initiative, a network of personal sponsors for teamless players and entertainers like Grubby, or something else entirely. The only thing that seems safe to assume at this time is that this new initiative is almost certainly made possible by the additional capital that came from their Amazon acquisition earlier this year.
