    [​IMG]"We've long been fans of Curse, which is an innovator in the games industry with a strong culture built around its offerings--from Curse Voice and Curse Client to Gamepedia," Twitch CEO Emmett Shear said in a statement. "While it's still early days for Twitch and Curse, we're kindred spirits in many ways and are looking forward to working together to enhance our users' gaming experience."
    Curse CEO Hubert Thieblot said in his own statement that Curse is "thrilled to be joining the Twitch family."
    "I'm really excited to see how we can bring Curse services into the Twitch network, and provide an unparalleled experience to both Curse and Twitch users," he added. "This is going to be terrific for the millions of players who use Curse, and for the larger gaming community."
    Twitch itself is owned by online retail giant Amazon, which paid $1 billion to buy the company in 2014.
