Seeking new audiences on Twitch{:target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"}
While I can't comment specifically on The Washington Post's strategy, generally speaking (sorry I don't have the specific research) it's a pretty good bet these kinds of social networks that emphasize community (and therefore are hard to casually offer what we've come to consider success in engagement) are likely the next frontier in driving digital culture.
