Amazon Purchases Twitch.tv

After long rumors of a buy-out by Google, Twitch has been purchased by Amazon for $970 million. The service which allows live video streaming of video games started a little over 3 years ago. According to reports, Twitch will be “keeping most everything the same,” and that the company will remain independent from Amazon. The acquisition will close in the second half of the year.
