Twitter & MLB Strike a New Streaming Partnership





Today Twitter and MLB announced a new streaming partnership. With this deal, Twitter will live stream daily players at-bats on twitter along with live shows covering major MLB events like London Series, Home Run Derby, All-Star Game from Cleveland, trade deadline, and the Postseason.

“Each morning, @MLB will Tweet out a call for fans to choose which player will be the featured hitter that day. @MLB will then livestream every one of that player’s at-bats on Twitter for fans in the United States. This is scheduled to debut on Opening Day – Thursday, March 28 – and continue throughout the regular season.” Twitter said in a statement on their website.

Twitter will also post videos of every home run hit during the season on the @MLB Twitter account. Twitter will also have near real-time video MLB highlights of every MLB game on its Twitter account.

“The Major League Baseball season is around the corner and with engaging new content this year, Twitter is the place where fans can come to view live video and near-real time highlights, and join the MLB conversation.” Twitter said in a statement on their website.

Twitter will also have Spanish-language highlights available from @LasMayores MLB’s official Spanish-language account throughout the 2019 season.
