Hey Shacknews, it's time for your First Post! Let's officially start our day of posting. Running a bit late, I was on a conference call when I normally post this. Please take a look.
First-ever Clash of Clans World Championships has a $1 million prize pool
It speaks to the size of the mobile gaming market to see such a huge prize pool for an esports event. It is crazy when compared to the pro Smash community. The Clash of Clans World Championship will feature eight teams and takes place at ESL One Hamburg 2019 this weekend. What a time to be alive.
Twitter warns shareholders that headwinds will continue through the rest of the year and could “bleed over” into 2020
Twitter (TWTR) stock is down nearly 20%. The company reported earnings of $0.17/share and revenue of $823.7 million. Both of those metrics missed Wall Street estimates.
The company did report 145 million in monetizable DAUs, which was a bright spot in the quarter.

Vice President Mike Pence says "NBA is acting like a wholly owned subsidiary" of China’s Communist Party
Wow, Pence: “In siding with the Chinese Communist Party and silencing free speech, the NBA is acting like a wholly owned subsidiary of the authoritarian regime.” CNBC reports.
