It's not Google that is buying Twitch. Amazon has agreed to buy the the most popular video game streaming website for $970 million.

 

Today, I’m pleased to announce we’ve been acquired by Amazon. We chose Amazon because they believe in our community, they share our values and long-term vision, and they want to help us get there faster. We’re keeping most everything the same: our office, our employees, our brand, and most importantly our independence. But with Amazon’s support we’ll have the resources to bring you an even better Twitch.

In some ways I'm glad it wasn't google or microsoft buying it. In my opinion it'll be in much better hands with amazon  :)

I agree Mellexx. Google would merge it with YouTube and Microsoft would make it an Xbox service. The worst would be Facebook.
