It might seem unusual to find a 77-year-old embracing Twitch — but it probably helps that he’s a presidential candidate. Bernie Sanders, senator from Vermont and Democratic presidential candidate, has a message for gamers: he’s on Twitch with them. (And, his campaign staff agrees...

Apologies to prospective readers for the delay in getting around to reviewing this piece. Now, andiamo! First and foremost the title, while an attempt at cleverness by the Author, playing off the title of an Ernest Hemingway novel, in this context, comes across as snide and insulting. Naturally, on first blush, the impression is that the substance of the article will follow a similar too clever by half approach to the subject matter. However, this turns out not to be the case. What follows is a nice examination of, basically, just one of the new ways technology changes the nature of modern day politicking. In that respect and in toto the article is interesting and informative. A worthwhile read.

A balanced and contextual look at Bernie's (and Yang's) activity on Twitch. More interesting to me was the monetization potential and the author's investigative due diligence in contacting the FEC for response.

I thought this would be a really boring piece that was entirely contained by the title, but I was happily surprised. It contained a lot of interesting incite into what campaigns need to address when using new platforms and some hints as to what the future of political outreach will look like.

Balanced and unbiased overview of Sanders' activity on Twitch and possible monetisation avenues approved by the FTC, for politicians online. Quick and informative.

This was a nice article showcasing the Bernie Sander's campaigns commitment to spreading its message. The piece itself does well to provide all relevant the information a reader would want to see, including the complications of remaining FEC compliant with Twitch's tipping model. Overall very balanced reporting on this presidential candidate.
