Periscope

I watched this interview of Periscope founder Kayvon Beykpour yesterday. Periscope is a user generated live video streaming app that Twitter bought in March of this year.

I really believe in Twitter’s future and Periscope is part of the reason why. As Kayvon shares, Periscope’s live video content is a perfect complement to Twitter’s live text content. Together, they’re a great way for news channels and entertainment events that serve live content to enhance their offering.

A nice touch to the interview was when Kayvon shared his inspiration for Periscope. He had the idea of building it while witnessing the Gezi Park protests in Istanbul in 2013.
