Periscope, the live video-streaming service owned by Twitter has gained considerable popularity since its initial release to the public in 2015. It allows its users to broadcast with the click of a button, from anywhere around the world. People from all walks of life are using Periscope to connect with their family and friends. Moreover, Periscope is emerging as a transformative vehicle for businesses as a platform for marketing their products and services.
How Does It Work?
Unlike other platforms that support the uploading of video clips like Instagram, Vine, and Snapchat, Periscope can broadcast live video streaming which has revolutionized the social media landscape. And, much to the appreciation of its users, the app is supported by both the iOS and Android platforms.
Additionally, Periscope can also be synced to your Twitter account, giving you the option of instantly sending a tweet with your broadcast link directly to your followers.
By using Periscope, you can broadcast anything from anywhere. You could be covering a live event, sharing an innovative concept with your followers, showcasing a new product for your company, or broadcasting special moments with friends and family. The advantages of Periscope are seemingly endless.
Periscope involves the use of distinct terminology for different functions, much like other social media platforms. Like Facebook and Twitter, Periscope uses a lot of vocabulary that needs to be defined to understand its unique features:
This feature allows the broadcast to be recorded and played after the initial broadcast has ended.
If someone likes your broadcast, he (she) can express their appreciation by pressing the heart icon.
Each broadcast session on Periscope is called a scope.
This option allows you to follow a specific user. Whenever a followed user broadcasts a new video, it will appear on your feed.
While watching live videos, users can post comments or ‘heart’ a broadcast which adds to the real-time capabilities of the app and encourages more interaction.
This feature allows users to download their favorite videos for later viewing.

Signing up on Periscope is a straightforward task. You can use your Twitter account to sign up or create a separate account by using your mobile phone number.
