In May, Variety first reported that Google was in talks to acquire video game streaming company Twitch for more than $1 billion. Three months later, that deal is dead and Amazon.com confirmed on Monday that it’s purchasing Twitch for approximately $970 million in cash.

You can buy the TPP chat logs on your amazon kindle.

I think it's pretty cool for the single reason that it wasn't Google. Not because I hate Google, but because Amazon has been trying to branch out recently and this is a good start.

Nice sarcasm there. You didn't get what I meant.
Wouldn't some need to renew their contracts or such? Most still get sponsor money tho.

Dumb move imo, it would have been better if Google got Twitch.
