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.

    The Democratic party is mostly corrupt and is in need of massive reforms. The Republican party is simply a lost cause.
    Flip that around and that is how Republicans feel about Democrats.

    Yesterday he had a rally. The democrats threw crap and beat people up. Have they ever really changed? All they do is change the thing they are pissed off about. How they go about it is the same. They only change the words then get mad if you do not use their new words for whatever fucked up shit they came up with.

    They sure have not made me decide 'you know they are such loving people who need my support'. I am thinking what the hell?! They have lost my vote for a long long long long time. At least the republicans pretend to care about freedom. There are democrat candidates talking about removing bill of right issues. Freedom of speech (hate speech), Freedom of religion (going after them), Freedom of defense (more laws ontop of what we have), Freedom to defend yourself (anonymous 'whistleblowers'). Those are just *recent* (in the past few weeks) examples (and in their own words). I can go back as far as you like. Then have them gaslight me into thinking somehow all the shit they do is the republicans fault. Only their fault for NOT DOING SOMETHING and letting the DNC continue to be the fucking asses their symbol epitomizes. These people are lawyers who use the slippery flowery speech to gaslight you.

    But look no further than who they associate with, and their own words. []
