Three Shorts: Axios, Crunchyroll, Periscope

The strategy behind the news, in as few bullet points as possible

It’s Wednesday morning! Time to grab a cup of coffee and put on your shorts :)

This week we explore the strategy behind:

  2. WarnerMedia’s sale of Crunchyroll (a seemingly perfect fit for HBO Max)
  3. Twitter’s video shakeup (killing Periscope and acquiring Squad)

Enjoy!
