Donald Trump joins Twitch, Amazon's game-streaming service

Donald Trump is spreading his social media wings with the launch of a channel on Twitch. Trump is at least the third candidate for president to create a presence on the video game streaming service.

Trump's account, which has a verification check mark, counts about 7,000 followers but hasn't posted any content as of this writing, but the move suggests the president will use the platform to livestream videos to his supporters as part of his 2020 re-election bid. Other candidates to launch Twitch accounts include Democrats Bernie Sanders and Andrew Yang.

Although not a fan of social media, Trump is one of the industry's most prolific users, using his Twitter account to announce policy changes and criticize his opponents. His 65.5 million followers on Twitter put him just out of the top 10 most-followed Twitter accounts. He also has nearly 15 million followers on Instagram, although he posts on that account far less frequently than he does on Twitter.

    There is one ground rule by which all ground warriors must abide: Don't mention Taiwan or Hong Kong, and include the 9-dashed line in all world maps.

    And if players dare violate those rules, ban them from speaking and posting...but don't cut off their payment accounts just yet: They may like those games enough to buy lootboxes in the near future when the next hot game comes out and they forget about all this.
