Twitter is working on developing a dedicated page on its service where you ll be able to catch streamed coverage of live events.

With its launch, it ll be easier to watch videos from the NFL, PGA, NHL, NBA, MLS, and other content providers without needing to search endlessly for a link.

There s no time for when this page will be rolled out, but one could hazard a guess that it might be right when the NFL s regular season kicks off this year.Earlier today, Twitter s chief financial officer Anthony Noto confirmed the livestreaming effort in a tweet.

With the company signing content partnerships with the major sports leagues and other groups, Twitter has begun testing out its video capabilities to ensure that it can scale.

The best way to do this is open it up to the service s 313 million monthly active users, but in a way that doesn t overload the system.

That s probably why users are seeing notifications within the Twitter app inviting them to watch things like the Republican and Democratic National Conventions, the PGA Tour s Barclays golf tournament, Wimbledon, and other events.Should Twitter work out all the kinks of its platform, it ll likely move into the next phase of more active promotion.
