Create live videos on Twitter

Twitter is the place to see what’s happening in the world—from breaking news to major live events. You can easily find or create live videos, powered by Periscope, to share what’s happening live. Live video feature is available on the Twitter app for iOS and Android.

How to start a live video:

  1. Tap the compose icon (  on iOS,  on Android).
  2. Tap the live video icon .

To end a live video:

You can end a live video at any time by swiping down and tapping End video.

Note: You cannot go live from Twitter if you have protected Tweets. A live video behaves just like a normal Tweet.
