A report coming out of Variety Google’s YouTube plans on making a deal to purchase the videogame-streaming service Twitch rumored for $1 billion according to sources.

Both YouTube and Twitch representatives have declined to comment on the rumor.

The announcement have gone full insanity with no clear direction what this might do to the Twitch user base or the site entirely. #RIPTwitch as of this post (May 18, 2014) is the number one trending topic on Twitter. Arguably the idea of the acquisition could be to force anti-competitive in the online-video market. Hopefully in the coming days we’ll find out more so keep it here for news, reviews, and rants on *Bleep* -bloop- BOOM!
