Periscope, a live video streaming service, allows users to post and stream live video content on social media. It shows you performance stats on retention, number of viewers, and average viewing time after your live video stream ends. Videos can be saved after the live stream ends.

Having the ability to save live video streams makes it easy to re-share content. Periscope is a native Twitter application so it has the advantage of being fully integrated with Twitter. It’s easy to follow people form Periscope, and you can choose whether or not to share your live streams.

Viewers can send “hearts” to the broadcaster by tapping on the mobile screen as a form of appreciation.

    I believe Periscope is winning over Meerkat, since Meerkat lost access to Twitter’s social graph. Twitter gives the Periscope access to a vast amount of users and streamers and viewers are moving over to Periscope.
