Periscope, Twitter's livestreaming answer to Meerkat, is now live


I've tried 'em both. Periscope is pretty great–no surprise that a service offered by Twitter for integration with Twitter would do so more seamlessly than one offered by a third party.

Verge has a good side-by-side comparison of what's interesting about each app.

Hearts and comments, nico nico-style, are what push Periscope over the top for me.
