Twitter’s Periscope Allows Live Stream Replays

live-streaming Twitter on Thursday unveiled Periscope, the live-streaming app developed by a company it acquired earlier this year, reportedly for just under $ 100 million.

Periscope is a lot like the popular new app Meerkat, with the biggest difference being Periscope’s support for broadcasting replays of streamed content. Both allow broadcasters to store copies of their feeds locally, but Meerkat doesn’t allow reruns.
