You Can Already Start Broadcasting at Periscope Directly from Twitter

Periscope is an application of video relay real-time Twitter which already carries a year thing more on iOS and Android. It was at the time the response to the emerging Meerkat, and probably the inspiration behind the Facebook Live Video that would later.

As expected, Periscope and Twitter are integrated the one another to a certain extent, but when it comes to starting a new relay should continue to open Periscope: there was no way to do it from Twitter. Now yes, with a new button available in the section to add media to a tweet. Camera buttons, video and Gallery in addition to a new one: live video.

The next time you want to show your city your followers what you have to do is therefore go to Twitter and start a new publication, adding live video to the tweet. That if you have activated the function, of course, which is currently unfolding among its users.

This change has been announced, how not, Periscope Twitter account, reporting that this button is now available for Android, and will come later for iOS. So far everything is normal, but the irony is that many Android users have responded to still not have it turned on, while others have shared catch your iPhone screen where you claim to have that button for a week. In short, a mess.
