The internet is filled with different social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram but the one which stands out the most is Twitter. What makes Twitter so special is the fact that the developers behind the platform keep on updating it with innovative and useful features thus increasing Twitter’s active user base every day at steady rate.
Twitter has been trying to surpass its competition for a while now and it looks like the company has found the just the right tool to help them achieve that goal. Recent reports have been showing that Twitter started giving its users the ability to watch and create 360 degree live videos, similar to the one used by Periscope. Right now, this tool is only available to a handful of people but it will be soon rolled out to the wide public. This feature shouldn’t come as a surprise since live streaming is the trend right now among all other popular social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter is known for always trying to stay on top of the latest trend.
From what we can see at the moment, it looks like Twitter live streamers will have to plug a camera into the bottom of a phone in order to start recording 360 degree videos. As previously mentioned this feature is only available to certain partners because Twitter is still tweaking the feature and going through all testing processes and this is the reason why the company isn’t hurrying to release the feature because it might be filled with bugs. Nonetheless, while right now there isn’t that much 360 degree media content on Twitter, once the tool goes live we can be sure that popular streamers will start toying with it and start creating fun and entertaining videos.
