Periscope hits 200 million live video broadcasts on its one-year anniversary
Since Periscope's launch last March, more than 110 years of live video is watched daily via Twitter's live streaming video app.
Periscope, Twitter’s live streaming video app, celebrated its one-year anniversary on Saturday, reporting it had reached more than 200 million live broadcasts. That’s more than double the number of broadcasts Twitter announced just three months ago when it launched Periscope live video streams directly within user timelines.
According to an announcement by the Periscope team on Medium, more than 110 years of live video is watched daily iOS and Android devices.
Purchased by Twitter in January of 2015, Periscope was kept in private beta until its official launch last March. Five months after its rollout, Periscope had more than 10 million user accounts.
Postscript: The original version of this story incorrectly stated that 110 year years of live video was watched during Periscope’s first year. This was corrected to reflect more than 110 years of live video is watched daily on iOS and Android.
