Twitter is rolling out their new GoLive feature, based on their ownership of Periscope. This isn’t a new streaming service so much as a tighter integration between Twitter and Periscope. The Twitter app now includes a GoLive button that will open Periscope and post on your Twitter account when you click it.
Listen to the audio version:
This is one more needed step on the road of Twitter and Periscope competing more successfully with Facebook Live. Twitter says Periscope as a stand-alone product isn’t going anywhere, but I’m not so sure. Twitter really does need to fully integrate the live video of Periscope into Twitter to be a fully featured and competitive option to what Facebook is offering.
Have you tried GoLive yet? What do you think? And do you want to see a more complete integration into Twitter? Let me know in the comments below!
