Twitter, meanwhile might have a deeper wound to lick now that it has lost the chance to host the mega football event on its platform.

"For us, this is about starting to bring live sports to our Prime members all around the world", Jeff Blackburn, the company's head of business development and entertainment, told Recode. The move is undoubtedly a good tactic to get more people to Prime and generate increased sales for Amazon.
