Periscope is Twitter’s live streaming video platform and the two are intimately entwined. If you’re not connecting with your viewers on Twitter you’re missing out!
Periscope is Twitter is Periscope
Here are some of the ways in which Twitter complements and integrates with Periscope:
- All Periscope broadcasts are announced on Twitter when they begin
- A pulsating red “Live on Periscope” notice is present in your Twitter Profile while you are live streaming
- Your Twitter followers can turn on Live Video Notifications to be alerted on Twitter whenever you go live on Periscope
- Viewers can easily share broadcast publicly on Twitter from within Periscope while watching
- Your past broadcasts can be discovered through Twitter Search
Create a Periscope Twitter List of Live Streamers
Twitter Lists can be a great way of creating ‘channels’ for viewing particular types of content on Periscope. For example, I’ve created an Aussie Live Streamers Twitter list that is useful for viewing Periscope broadcasts from Australia.
You could even create a Twitter List of all you regular viewers so that you can dip into that list from time to time to connect with them outside of your broadcasts.
As a Periscope broadcaster, a large part of your audience is already active on Twitter. Are you there connecting with them?
