Live streaming videos are trending now a days. People are moving towards Live videos from the so called selfie mania. Even we can see Facebook has launched live Video on its social media platform through which personal accounts as well as brand pages can live stream their own videos. Its awesome. Is not it?
Micro-blogging site Twitter will soon allow media firms to post live streaming videos directly into the service, media reports said. According to a report in the Information on Thursday, Twitter will allow media firms to plug directly into Twitter`s software to go live by opening its streaming application programming interface (API) to them.
Though media organisations have already been hosting live streams on Twitter, it required partnerships and extensive planning between the two. With the upcoming announcement, Twitter`s API will let these organisations go live without using Periscope.
