Broadcast Live Video with Periscope



Twitter’s newly launched app, Periscope, lets you stream and broadcast live video from

around the world. Using your iPhone, Periscope allows you to capture and broadcast live

allowing others to experience the world through your eyes.


Periscope is closely integrated with Twitter so you don’t have to create a new account

from scratch. Instead, you can simply link your Twitter profile. Once you’re signed into

Periscope using Twitter, the app will look through the people you follow on Twitter see if

they’re using the app as well. You can select users to follow on Periscope from that list

and search out new ones.


Once you’re all set up you can watch live broadcasts by tapping the TV icon at the

bottom of the app and selecting from a feed showing you live and recent broadcasts. You

can also watch broadcasts on your computer. While you’re watching a live feed, you can

interact with the video by commenting live or indicating your approval by sending hearts.

To start your own broadcast you simply tap the camera icon and set your desired level of

privacy and whether you’d like to share the broadcast on Twitter. Your video will be

broadcast live and remain available for replay for 24 hours.


Periscope is a fascinating way to view the world. It allows users to discover events and

places that might not be other wise accessible to them. For example, a lot of footage from

the events in Baltimore has been captured and broadcast over the new social network this

week. With over a million users signing up in a matter of a few weeks, it will be

interesting to see how this network evolves in the coming months.
