Twitter to allow live video streaming in-app
Twitter users can now stream videos live from the app in their Android and iOS devices.
This comes after the microblogging platform integrated more tightly with live streaming service Periscope.
The iOS and Android application updates will soon be rolling out, allowing users to press a ‘LIVE’ button directly from the compose screen where they write tweets.
Twitter acquired Periscope in early 2015 and has been working to make sure that live streaming is a prominent part of its platform.
Other social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and YouTube have already started rolling out live video streaming, meaning that Twitter is already behind.
