Twitter launches Periscope, its own application for streaming live videos

After acquiring the company Periscope (specialized in streaming live video) last January, Twitter yesterday launched the homonymous app on the App Store.

As you can and should imagine, we are talking about a specific application for people to broadcast their videos live over the network. His great differential for other services / apps of this type (such as the relatively new Meerkat) is the possibility of seeing replays of events they are available up to 24 hours after the live broadcast, with the right to comments and hearts (equivalent to likes). Obviously, if you want, the owner of the transmission can delete everything at any time.

In addition, it is possible to broadcast a live video only to a certain person, completely privately. But if you want to put your mouth on the trombone and spread the word live that you’re transmitting, the best way to make it touch the bird’s icon. In this way, your broadcast link will be shared with all your Twitter followers.

As he is integrated with Twitter, he already presents you with a list of people to follow. When following someone, you will be notified as soon as that person starts a transmission. If your idea is just looking for something to watch, the app's homepage contains a lot of videos selected by them.

As we can see, the thing is very cyclical. We are facing the “old” JustinTV and Ustream, only now fully focused on mobile platforms.
