Twitter starts testing Periscope button for Android

– In a new integration with Periscope, Twitter for Android users are beginning to see a “go live” button when they go to compose tweets, The Verge said.

Starting Monday, May 16, a small percentage of users can tap the button and be redirected to Periscope, where they can begin a live broadcast. Users who do not have Periscope installed are redirected to the Google Play Store. The integration brings Twitter closer to parity in user experience with Facebook, which allows users to begin broadcasts from inside its flagship app. “We’re rolling out a ‘Go Live’ button in Twitter to a small percentage of users,” the company said in a statement. “Over time, all users will have the ability to start a Periscope broadcast from Twitter.”
