Twitch as we know it will die if it's bought by Google, and that's a good thing

Twitch as we know it will die if it's bought by Google, and that's a good thing | How Twitch has developed over the recent purchase with Google. | Scoop.it
Over the weekend news broke that Google is making a bid for Twitch.tv. It's not nearly as bad as it sounds.
Ryan Ø'Cønnør's insight:

After overviewing this article and reading the comments in much surprise I'm noticing a lot more small changes that Google is doing to replace certain aspects of Twitch. A lot of my other posts have mentioned music being removed from twitch and that seems to be the most of peoples concern, although now many people are looking at the aspect of Twitch's life, games being removed from the scene.

The stepping stone for what Twtich.tv has become justin.tv was officially shut down due to recent changes with Google. As unfortunate as it is to lose a site that was so close with the people of justin.tv most people have there archived videos and films transferred over to Twitch.tv

I think that this is a great way too see how the internet and the entertainment industry work together on a streaming web sight as popular as Twitch.  Earlier this year an experiment took place on twitch similar to this and it helped demonstrate how the community of twitch gets together to help achieve goal.

Justin Nguyen's curator insight, April 9, 2017 9:16 PM
I have never been a part of the twitch plays pokemon fandom, finding it too nightmare fuel enducing and irritating to all end, namely because a fandom that big is bound to spawn a lot of trolls who drag the game on longer then it needs to go.

From reading this the appeal seems to be the almost randomness that makes the game so damn fun. Apparently there is also religions and mythology about this very randomness. 

And now there is a fish acting of a god of randomness of sorts. I don't understnad why in all honesty there a lot of animals that could add to the randomness at a  much faster pace. Dogs and cats for example. It's not a bad idea per say but it can be improved upon.

i can easily see bits being doggie treats or cat treats, subscription being  a really good reward. that animal could be a phenomenal icon in a month tops.
