Periscope: It’s been dubbed, “the closest thing to teleportation.” Imagine being able to watch live events anywhere in the world as they happen.
With Periscope you can:
- Watch your grandchildren take their first steps as they happen.
- Go on vacation with your extended family.
- Be right in the middle of a revolutionary protest anywhere from Ferguson to Egypt.
- Take a mule ride down the Grand Canyon.
- Swim in the Blue Lagoon in Iceland.
All with just a simple click, you’re there watching events unfold live. Interact during the event by sending comments or hearts as you watch.
Periscope has recently teamed up with Twitter to bring users even closer to experiences they would never see otherwise.
Meerkat: Are you a tweet-o-haulic? Meerkat give you the ability tweet live video. When you’re ready to share a live event with your followers, simply tweet a message that you’re ready to broadcast along with a link for your followers to join.

While live streaming is old news, linking it with Twitter allows an accessibility that is great for people, especially if they have large followings on the social network.
