iOS Twitter app now has button to start live Periscope broadcast … kind of

Twitter has updated both iOS and Android apps with a Live button that starts a Periscope broadcast. It’s actually a bit of a cheat, though, as all the button does is open the Periscope app – or prompt you to download it if you don’t already have it installed.

“Apple’s HLS is nothing more than Emblaze’s patented solution under a different name,” he said.
