Twitter for iOS Testing Periscope ‘LIVE’ Button for Users in Canada [PIC]

If you like to live stream on Twitter’s Periscope, it’s going to be a lot easier soon. Twitter has started rolling out a Periscope button within their iPhone app, under the Compose tweet screen, as seen below:

Tapping the “LIVE” icon immediately launches Periscope for iOS, to the Start Broadcast screen so you can quickly start streaming.

A Twitter spokesperson confirmed with us this feature is “currently testing” and not fully available yet, but as you can see a small group of iOS users do have access right now. Let us know if you’re seeing a Periscope button within Twitter on your iPhone.

Last month, Periscope announced new comment moderation features to combat spam within live broadcasts. Earlier this year, live Periscope streams became integrated into Twitter timelines.
