Today, Twitter introduced the world with a unique and the best way to share and watch live video broadcasts from your mobile phone by unveiling Periscope, currently available only to iOS.
Twitter has been involved in this process for an year to give us a brand new way of looking things we want to right now and their blog reads “While there are many ways to discover events and places, we realized there is no better way to experience a place right now than through live video. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but live video can take you someplace and show you around.”
Periscope lets you share an experience with others. Press a button, and instantly notify your followers that you’re live. 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.
Periscope gives 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.
Twitter will 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 read the blog.
Download Periscope for iOS right now from here and start sharing your live broadcast with yourfollowers. Hope this is soon made available to other platforms too.
Stay tuned for more tech buzz.
