    Twitter to stream Bloomberg's TV shows


    TWITTER is slated to live-stream some of Bloom-berg's television programmes, the latest in a series of content deals struck by the microblogging service this year.

    Bloomberg, owned by former New York City mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg, will stream Bloomberg West, What'd You Miss?, With All Due Respect and the network's markets coverage, the company said on its website.

    Twitter has been pushing into live video as it seeks to revive user growth and better compete with Facebook's Live streaming service.

    It struck a deal with NFL in April to stream some Thursday Night Football games this fall.

    It also streamed pre- and post-game content related to tennis' Wimbledon championship this month.
