Social network launches live video-streaming app, Periscope

Twitter is excited to unveil Periscope, the best way to share and watch live video broadcasts from your mobile phone.

Twitter

For broadcasters, Periscope lets you share an experience with others, press a button, and instantly notify your followers that you’re live.

Whether you’re witnessing your daughter’s first steps or a newsworthy event, Periscope offers an audience and the power of a shared experience.

Most mobile broadcasting tools feel far from live. Broadcasters on Periscope are directly connected to their audience, able to feel their presence and interact. Going live on Periscope means more than a blinking red dot.

For viewers, Periscope gives you a new set of eyes and ears, travel the world and step into someone else’s shoes.

See what they see, hear what they hear, and hopefully feel what they feel. Watching a broadcast isn’t a passive experience like television.

On Periscope, viewers influence the broadcaster by sending messages, and expressing their love by tapping the screen to send hearts, you can tap the video while watching to send a heart color coded to you.

Twitter announced that they are very excited about the Periscope; "What excites us most about Periscope is the power of seeing something for yourself. We watched someone rise above the Sonoma valley in a hot air balloon; we witnessed “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” directly from Ferguson, Missouri, a terrifying fire that erupted in San Francisco’s Mission district and a live performance from a pianist who played any song requested from the audience."

"We’ve always imagined Periscope as a visual pulse of what’s happening . Our friends at Twitter felt the same way, and in January we decided to work towards this vision together. We’ll continue building Periscope as a separate product, with a small team based in San Francisco. Twitter brings you closer to people, places, interests, and events in an experience that’s immediate, unfettered, and conversational. We think Periscope can help further that mission by giving people a way to share and experience the world around them, both near and far."

Periscope can now be downloaded, so start exploring.
