When The Daily Dot asked Google about their streaming plans, they didn't even get a "no comment."
On Tuesday, The Daily Dot published a story about YouTube's plans for streaming content. The article stated that Google was planning to use YouTube to broadcast live video gaming events, a market that is currently dominated by Amazon's Twitch service. The Daily Dot had insider sources providing them with this information, but still reached out to Google directly for comment. Here is Google's complete and unedited reply:
Nice move, Google. If a picture is worth 1,000 words, and this gif if 30 frames long, they basically just sent a 30,000 word response. That's like a whole novel! But it took the representative who sent it a fraction of the time. There's that famous Silicon Valley efficiency for you.
It's no surprise that Google's representatives are hip to the Internet culture. They are the Internet. Even so, for a company of that size to respond to a journalist with a sense of humor is a nice touch. It certainly makes me feel better about them taking over the world. And I was already cool with that.
