Periscope shutting down globally today

Periscope is shutting down, just over six years after it launched. The service has already been removed from app stores. Live streaming will now be on Twitter.

Twitter announced the impending shutdown in December, saying usage was declining, and the app had been in an “unsustainable maintenance-mode state” for a while.

The Periscope website will remain online with an archive of public broadcasts. Periscope users will still be able to download their data through Twitter.
