Google interested in acquiring live-video-streaming service Twitch

Twitch accounts for 44 percent of all live streaming video traffic, higher than Youtube Live

On May 18, the Wall Street Journal reported that Google is in talks to purchase Twitch, one of the fastest-growing video services on the web. Talks are reportedly in the opening stages, and Twitch does maintain the option of opening another round of funding instead of selling, but both parties are at least interested in the talks.
