Twitter today announced that we can tweet live video direct from the Twitter app, which is “powered by” Periscope. Live video is the new black for 2017 we are all going to be live streaming, and if we are not we should be. The thing is now there is no excuse as it is going to be easy to do it from your mobile. We’ve had updates on Facebook Live and Instagram and the popular Snapchat of course, all of our social networks are fighting for you to show everyone what is happening in your world on their network.
The reason live streaming is so popular is that your can connect and interact with your audience in real time. This creates a way for people to really get to know you. Transparency: you don’t get that from creating videos which have been tweaked and edited beyond their life or from words on a page. Live video (unless you have a special overlay) is live, real and right now.
