The major complaint on Twitter till date even by its avid users was that it allows only 140 characters to explain our feelings or our message. Well, it is obvious that somewhere there should be a line drawn to differentiate different social media platforms and hence Twitter has chosen not to allow a single character beyond the limit of 140. So, you need to be smart and fit your feelings and messages between that limit prescribed by Twitter. But Twitter was never stubborn and it kept on making changes according to popular demands.

With the integration of “Periscope”, Twitter can now let you live stream your video right from inside the app.

When you go live, your friends are instantly notified. They cannot just watch your live video but also send you message. You can check out your real-time viewers and be able to interact with them. It’s a great way to connect with your friends and followers and most importantly; put your message across. Want to go live on Twitter? Let’s dive ahead!
