Twitter launches Periscope, an app that lets you broadcast your life
Twitter today launched Periscope, a new app that allows users to broadcast live video from their smartphones. Users are able to relay live vision to their followers with the press of a button, while viewers can interact with the broadcaster through sending messages and tapping their screen to send hearts.
"Just over a year ago, we became fascinated by the idea of discovering the world through someone else’s eyes," said the Periscope team on its official blog. "What if you could see through the eyes of a protester in Ukraine? Or watch the sunrise from a hot air balloon in Cappadocia? It may sound crazy, but we wanted to build the closest thing to teleportation."
