Twitter adds live broadcast top on your timeline

Twitter is a microblogging social media platform which has a unique way of blogs style where everyone can tweet his status and can be seen as people of that specified hashtags.

Twitter is making it easier for everyone to know when a live broadcast is on. The microblogging platform has added live broadcast to your timeline—precisely at the top where it will be easy to know when accounts you follow has gone live.

In a tweet a couple of days ago, Twitter said the new feature will include sports, breaking news, and personalities. The new feature, according to the microblogging company, is already rolling out to iOS and Android users.

“We’re making it easier to find and watch live broadcasts. Now, when accounts you follow go live, the stream will appear right at the top of your timeline.”

Simply go to the compose screen on Twitter and tap the “Go Live” button to pull up the live-streaming screen. A microphone icon has now been added to enable you to toggle the “audio-only broadcast” option on or off. Twitter is gradually positioning its business and is fast becoming a place where people go and watch live sporting events. Several partnerships were recently agreed upon to enable the company stream live sporting events to millions of people on the platform.

The broadcast option was added to the main Twitter app in 2016 but has not gained as much traction as the company would have wanted. Perhaps, this latest move will not only make the feature on the main Twitter app popular but will also reposition the Periscope app as a platform for podcasting.
