In what could perhaps be seen as the breaking of a very minimal barrier, Mojang has announced at Minecon that they will be integrating streaming to Twitch.tv into the game.
"Minecraft has struck a very powerful chord with the Twitch community," said Twitch marketing VP Matthew DiPietro. "Its constantly escalating popularity illustrates that people love to watch video games outside of the headline grabbing eSports titles. Expect a watershed moment for both players and spectators once the ability to easily broadcast gameplay directly to Twitch goes live."
So if you'd been worried that maybe not enough people had been streaming their Minecraft sessions, you can relax now.
