This week, Donald Trump joined Twitch, the popular video streaming platform owned by Amazon.
In a little over a day the verified account has amassed 55,860 followers.
The channel has so far been used to broadcast Trump’s campaign rallies, including footage of his speech at a rally in Minnesota on October 10th.
The channel’s home page has links to Trump’s merchandise store, as well as options for those who either want to donate or, volunteer for, his campaign.
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders also has a Twitch channel, reports The Verge.
A number of political figures have appeared on the service that was first popularized by video game players, including Cory Booker, Matt Gaetz, and Suzan DelBene.
The clips feature allows other Twitch users not officially connected to Trump to isolate their own small excerpts from the video and label them.
