Roshan Dwivedi Published on : 22 April 2015


Last week VideoInk broke a story that floored us — “Yahoo Shutters Video streaming Platform for Creators One Year After Anticipated Launch.” We reached out to two key reporters at top media/digital media publications and, shockingly, one hadn’t even heard the news (nor seemed to think it was a big deal) while the other had heard, but was still sniffing around.
