Twitter's most recent update allows you to broadcast live video.
This isn't new, exactly. But now, you no longer need a Periscope account to do so -- you can do it directly from Twitter.
Periscope has been Twitter's live tool of choice since March 2015 (remember Meerkat before that?). However, as Facebook Live has exploded in popularity, Twitter has had to reckon with the fact that its live video service requires two apps, where Facebook needs just one.
Here's the initial announcement tweet.
There seems to be some compatibility for those still using Periscope -- Twitter said "anyone on Twitter and Periscope" can interact with the live video with comments and "hearts," just like original Periscope. And Facebook Live.
Periscope's Twitter account didn't seem too fazed by the changes.
Twitter announces this morning what it had to -- live video will now pop up straight in timelines instead of cumbersome link to Periscope.— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) December 14, 2016
So far the reaction has been positive for some users.
But others feared a flood of uninteresting, annoying live videos.
