Just to let you know that today we are endeavouring to bring to you our very first periscope.....eeek! We are obviously at the kind of 'mucking about' stage right now but of course we want it to be ace and really interesting too.!
Incase you dont know much about Periscope....heres a bit of the 'blurb' for you:
Periscope is a “live video streaming platform”, which basically means you can transmit a live recording of yourself to your Persicope and Twitter followers. Imagine Skyping someone, but instead of video calling a single person, you’re instead linked up to the whole community. Not only that, whoever’s watching you can comment and ask questions. These show up on your screen whilst broadcasting making it easy to answer and interact. So please ask loads of questions won't you!
Periscope is designed as a mobile app, so you can use it frequently and off-the-cuff when you are out and about. Also, because Periscope is owned by Twitter, it automatically links up with your Twitter account. This means when we do a live transmission it appears on your Twitter newsfeed.
You can re-watch any of our videos for 24 hours after the live broadcast. After that they disappear and no one can watch it back, although we plan to embed ours so that they will always be available, here on our blog. You can also click through to the ‘World Map’ tab which shows you where all the live broadcasts are taking place at that moment. This is where you find some weird and wonderful stuff as you eavesdrop into people’s lives from around the globe.
UPDATE! 28/8/15 2pm
thanks to all those who joined the live feed and giveway find the video here for 24 hr or on our new YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqWk93TdiOM4MTq_BfvJxCQ
