Twitter to offer live look-ins during MLB postseason

Those who broadcast the knockout matches will be able to show the content on their social media accounts, and the live action will also be shown on the official MLB account.

NEW YORK – Twitter will provide live broadcast glimpses during the post-season of Major League Baseball.

ESPN, Fox and other broadcasters of the knockouts will be able to show content on their social media accounts, and the live action will also be shown on the official MLB account. Twitter did not comment on how long each live view might last.

Twitter will be the only social media platform to officially live stream views during the post-season, which kicks off Friday with four wild card circle games. Twitter has looked at post-season games before, but the company is saying it hasn’t happened on the scale it would have been this year.

Sarah Rosen, Twitter’s Director of North American Content Partnerships, said the company has been focused on bringing more short-form, live video content to the platform. Fox College Football News used Twitter last year to show a specific camera angle, while previous viewing has been used for the PGA Tour and NBC station on the Olympics, among the others.
