Twitter Adds “Go Live” Feature
Dec. 28, 2016—Twitter has now introduced to its users the ability to record live video with a feature called Go Live.
The new feature looks to simplify the way you can broadcast live video straight from Twitter. With Go Live, Twitter will let you create and tweet a live video from the app, which will be powered by Periscope. Using the ease of Periscope is a smart move by Twitter as it competes with Facebook Live and even YouTube.
Creating and posting a video is the same as composing a tweet. When you are ready, tap “Live” and you will be directed to the pre-broadcast screen to frame your shot. Press “Go Live” and the broadcast begins to stream the video.
As for your audience, they can access the live video on Twitter and Periscope and participate by retweeting, commenting, and liking your posts.
