Twitch Launches Pulse to Share Content Outside of Streams

Twitch is launching a new feature on its platform that renders it closer to a social media channel than ever.

The feature, dubbed Pulse, enables streamers to post and engage with followers and the greater Twitch community from the Twitch front page.

Pulse can be used to share highlights of previous streams, schedules for future streams, and more Twitter-esque content like links, polls, and memes.

Last month Twitch announced plans to launch a marketplace for games, similar to Steam. The marketplace is slated to launch this spring.
