Just this week, Tech Crunch reports that Twitter introduced the 360-degree live streams through Periscope. Periscope 360 only has a limited number of partners, Twitter is now one of them. This is a great addition to Twitter, as live streaming is on the rise and is becoming increasingly popular on social media platforms like Facebook.
With the new year coming up Twitter wanted to make a future for the app. The 360 live videos allow Twitter users get to capture everything that is going on around them. This feature is a strong way to attract new users as it helps build an audience.
