Big move by Twitter. It's now streaming Wimbledon live: https://i.imgur.com/OAGFLjo.gif Notice the new URL structure: twitter.com/i/live

This is what Twitter should exploit. Live events with video and feed. Get this on the Apple TV ASAP!

It's just commentary now (with a link to an ESPN page that doesn't work in the US), but I think this is a good sign of what we'll see when the NFL streams start this fall. And that's awesome.

Isn't this just a step up from radio though? RE: Wimbledon - You don't seem to be able to watch the match, just a video of the commentators haha. Also its a few minutes behind the live game - and with Twitter focusing on real-time, live events - it may need to get up to speed here. I like the idea though and the tweet stream next to it is cool.

Imagine this will move the needle in a big way on the advertising front.
