Periscope, an interactive experience accessible anywhere in the world
Periscope is an application that allows you to simply stream live video directly from your device with extra quality. By promoting interaction in real time, the application has attracted the interest of many Internet users. Periscope can be used to capture the atmosphere among a football match, to film a live incident, to broadcast a report, or simply to film and broadcast a group walk. The immediacy of the application encourages viewers to participate in what is happening in the video. Viewers do this by sending comments, to which the person sharing the video can respond in real time. By default, all broadcasts are initially public unless you change the settings. Periscope also has an interactive map of the world that is used to explore videos broadcast anywhere else by targeting a particular viewing stream.
Since February 2015, the application has been bought by Twitter. You can now sign in using your Twitter account or phone number. However, if you want to make the most of the social aspect of Periscope, it is recommended to use its Twitter ID.
