Just when you thought Twitch represented a safe haven from politics, here comes the Trump train.

President Donald Trump started up a verified account on Twitch earlier this week.

Thus far, the channel contains just one video, promoting Trump’s upcoming rally in Dallas Oct. 17. It had nearly 53,000 followers at the time of this post.

Other key political figures have joined Twitch over the past year, including presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
