Twitter acquires streaming rights to NFL Thursday night games

Twitter wins rights to digitally stream NFL’s Thursday night games for $10 million, beating Amazon and Verizon. According to analysts, this is big win for Twitter, which has been struggling to increase its user base. The video deal, which is packaged for 10 games, will allow Twitter to expand its offerings beyond the usual tweets by celebrities, politicians and media personalities. If Twitter is able to add new users to its platform, the deal could pave the way for more video deals covering other sports, politics and entertainment.
