Amazon acquires Twitch

twitch-streamingI have reported a lot about giant companies acquiring big companies before. Remember when Facebook bought Instagram? Today, I am hearing a lot of about Amazon acquiring Twitch.

If you aren’t familiar with Twitch, think of it as a place where video gamers can go to post their gaming. It is a lot of fun, and it has a lot of hits. There was apparently some rumors that Google might buy this company, but it looks like Amazon beat them to the punch with $1 billion.

So, what does Amazon intend to do with this company? I don’t know. It is the world’s biggest bookstore, so why not this popular video-game related site. Yeah, I don’t know what they will do. I wonder if they have any buyer’s remorse over this one. Well, we’ll see.
