Twitter to launch app on Apple TV, others to stream NFL
SAN FRANCISCO - A new Twitter app is coming to Xbox One, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV, where viewers will be able to watch NFL games on Thursday nights.
The short-messaging service secured the rights to stream 10 Thursday night games this year as it attempts to broaden its appeal. It's hoping that live video of sports and other events will help stimulate more interest in its service.
It's a crucial time for the faltering company that is trying to improve stagnating user growth, not to mention boost its appeal to advertisers.
