In 2015 Twitter rolled out live streaming with Periscope and it quickly turned into the top mobile streaming platform but as years passed Periscope usage declined.

Recently Twitter shut down Periscope API and moved to Twitter API. You can now easily go live on Twitter via Restream using an automatic connection 🎉
