The Quest for new Audiences has Taken The Washington Post to the Streaming Platform Twitch
Twitch: It’s not just for Fortnite battle royales anymore. The Washington Post tried out broadcasting on the streaming platform best known for gaming yesterday with content related to politics — which is its own battle royale, really.
The Post’s plans for the platform include “postgame” coverage of major news events hosted by political reporter Libby Casey and a series called Playing Games with Politicians, in which political reporter Dave Weigel will interview politicians while playing video games. On Monday, the Post streamed coverage of Donald Trump’s meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin.
