Recode: Twitter lost its NFL streaming deal but says it’s still committed to live TV. “Twitter will not stream the National Football League’s “Thursday Night Football” games this fall — Amazon will instead, announcing a new $50 million deal with the league late Tuesday night. That’s bad news for Twitter. Not necessarily because those NFL streams drove a lot of new users (they didn’t) or generated a lot of money (they didn’t), but because that NFL partnership was the cornerstone of Twitter’s livestreaming video strategy that it has been pushing to investors for almost a year.”
