#QUICKHIT: Persicope Now Broadcasting on the Web

Posted on 9.20.2015

Just a few weeks after introducing landscape mode, popular Twitter-owned digital video broadcasting service Periscope is bringing user profiles to the Web.

While Periscope is still enforcing its 24-hour expiration date on videos, it's a clear sign that Twitter is thinking beyond the smartphone and sees potential in moving away from its exclusive mobile, time-sensitive offering.

“We think it’s really important for broadcasters to have a home on the web, and today’s launch is just the beginning,” the company explained.
