Periscope's Live Streams Now Pop Up in Tweets


Periscope on Tuesday announced integration with Twitter, allowing users to view its live-stream broadcasts directly in the Twitter iOS app. Previously, Periscope broadcasters could share only links to their videocasts in tweets.

In that time, Periscope has attracted more than 20 million user accounts, according to Periscope CEO Kayvon Beykpour.
