Twitter

The Twitter experience may soon be rolling out to a big screen near you. The online social networking service has announced in a press release that it will soon launch new streaming apps for Xbox One, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV.

While it's not immediately clear how different the new streaming app will be from the already existing Twitter app, the social networking company has said that the free app will feature all live streaming video available on Twitter. Streams of 10 NFL Thursday Night Football games, as well as content from MLB Advanced Media, NBA, Pac 12 Networks, Campus Insiders, Cheddar and Bloomberg News are all apparently part of the app. Other Twitter content such as Tweets and top global Vines and Periscopes are also included in the app as well.

The new app will be available in select world markets, and starting today on Apple TV. The Xbox One version, meanwhile, will soon launch in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Users of the app will not need a Twitter account or a TV subscription to enjoy the experience.
