“We started Periscope because we wanted to give people the superpower to share live video with an audience. Bringing this capability directly into the Twitter app is an important step because it brings that superpower to the hundreds of millions of people who use Twitter,” said Kayvon Beykpour, CEO of Periscope.

“Twitter’s already the place where people go to see what’s happening. With this update, anyone can now broadcast what’s happening live.”

Members of the audience within a live video on Twitter can also interact with the broadcaster by commenting and sending hearts to show their support. Tweets that contain live video can be retweeted, liked, and shared anywhere that people can share a tweet.

Anyone on Twitter can now create and tweet live video with the latest Android and iOS updates.
