You read that right, ex-FBI Director James Comey’s testimony in front of the United States Senate’s Intelligence Committee will air on twitch.tv/news from 10am EST — 1PM EST with Twitch chat in all its glory. Twitch is offering this broadcast as a public service to our community.
You may remember that last summer we broadcast the Republican and Democratic conventions on Twitch. We wanted to provide the Twitch community with an easy, familiar way to get involved in the political process. Thousands of you joined us to not only hear the speakers, but also to engage with each other via Twitch chat.
Speaking of chat, we’ll be protecting everyone’s experience with the highest level of AutoMod in addition to support from our professional moderation team.
