Dec 14, 2016: Not to be left behind by Facebook Live, Twitter Wednesday unveiled a new live streaming service.

According to a post on the site’s blog, “You can create and Tweet live video from the Twitter app, powered by Periscope.”

To broadcast, Twitter says you simply have to tap “Live” when composing a tweet. That will bring you to a “pre-broadcast” screen, where you can make sure the shot is right.

When you’re ready, you hit “Go Live” so people can start watching you.

Those watching can interact with you with comments or stickers.

“Live video brings moments and events to life in a way that no other medium can,” Twitter said.

The rollout for iOS and Android will happen over the coming days.

Twitter says users can see what others are doing by going to the #GoLive hashtag. (VOA)

Micro-blogging site Twitter is trying new ways to improve the ‘Lists’ feature on its platform.

The company on Tuesday announced that it has begun testing to make the feature easier to use.

The feature, remained buried inside Twitter’s interface, is intended to let users create custom timelines by adding specific users whose tweets a user is interested to track.

“Customisable timelines that are easy to access? We’re thinking about ways to do this! One idea we had is for you to be able to swipe to your lists from home. If you’re in the test tell us what you think,” Twitter posted on its handle.

The announcement gathered positive responses from the users.

“This is an excellent idea. Being able to order the lists would be important too. If anything makes it a toggle in Lists so we can have it if we want,” a user posted.

“Love this. Many people don’t even know about lists. I use lists all the time to cut through the noise. This is a great fix! Love the ease of access,” wrote Kyle Harris, renowned vlogger and social media commentator.
