Twitter is seeing major progress after securing a deal with the MLB to livestream their Wednesday night games. The company is still keeping its sights on finding major networks for its live stream television service in light of Amazon’s recent $50 million dollar deal to livestream the National Football League’s thursday night games for this fall. Aside from baseball, Twitter has shown progress in focusing on other sports leagues such as the National Hockey League, National Lacrosse League, and the National Basketball Association.

The company’s vision is to allow users with an existing TV service to be able to watch live programming through its platform. Just over a month ago the company announced it will allow its users to mute specific words, hashtags, and phrases for a set period of time on their timeline. Given that many users enjoy using the platform to tweet during their favorite shows in real-time, the new feature may benefit avid fans of primetime shows, not just niche events.
