One Year After Launch, Periscope Boasts a Million Hours of Live-Streams Per Day

A year after its launch, Twitter’s live-streaming app Periscope is boasting some impressive numbers: more than 200 million broadcasts and 1 million hours of live-streams consumed per day. But the competition is also hot on its heels.

As MediaPost’s Gavin O’Malley writes, “For Twitter, the only problem is that its rivals have no intention of letting Periscope own the live-streaming space. On the contrary, Google is readying a live-streaming app that will be closely integrated with YouTube, while Facebook can’t seem to scale its live-video feature fast enough.”
