Twitter continues to bolster its live streaming catalog. The Wall Street Journal reported late Sunday about Twitter’s new deal with Bloomberg for a 24/7 live streaming news program produced specifically for Twitter that will combine Bloomberg’s own reporting with content from verified Twitter users. The deal is expected to officially be announced Monday. This follows Twitter’s ambition to broadcast live video 24 hours a day; last quarter it streamed 800 hours of live content to 45 million unique viewers. Shares of Twitter were up 10 percent last week after the company beat expectations for both revenue and user growth for its first quarter of 2017.
