What is Periscope?

Periscope is a live-streaming video app that was bought by Twitter in February of 2015. Since it was bought by Twitter, you can easily connect and share with those whom you follow (or follow you) on Twitter. Those who follow you on Periscope will be alerted when you go live. Once you are on live, they are able to communicate with you through comments and show you love by giving you hearts.
