How do I stream audio on Twitter

With the streaming app Periscope, users can stream live video content from their smartphone. It is still unclear whether the app will be integrated into Twitter.

The US short message service Twitter has bought the start-up Periscope. The company has developed a live streaming app that allows users to stream videos in real time. Theverge.com reports that it is not known whether this service will be integrated into Twitter and how much Twitter paid for the app.

When it comes to video services, Twitter has been evolving for some time. Since the beginning of the year, users have been able to upload and share videos via the Twitter app.

The Meerkat app caused quite a stir recently. With the third-party app, users can start the live stream after logging in on Twitter and comment on the video in real time. In retrospect, however, the video is no longer available.

Recently there were rumors about a new design for Twitter. Allegedly, the microblogging service is planning a radical overhaul of its site. An algorithm should also sort the tweets according to relevance.
