I discovered Periscope back in May 2015 and it quickly became one of my favorite apps. Periscope, a live video streaming app for iOS and Android, was purchased by Twitter for a reported $100 million in March 2015.

The app allows users to watch others or broadcast certain things that they are doing in real-time.

Many television stations are encouraged to use it to show what goes on behind-the-scenes or to show their newscasts. This exposure actually increases traffic to the station's website.

Television stations WRDW in Augusta, Georgia and KGUN in Tucson, Arizona are the ones that I watch often. Viewers can ask the anchors questions and they usually answer during commercial breaks.

I also follow the official account for Auburn's sports teams, which can be found @AuburnTigers. The morning of the Jacksonville State game, viewers were shown behind-the-scenes of War Eagle Productions. The crew runs the new massive video board from a building on campus with two rooms filled with monitors and editing equipment that shows fans inside Jordan-Hare instant replays.

The app also has a feature that allows viewers to send "hearts" to the broadcaster by tapping on the mobile screen as a form of appreciation. Under the People tab, there will be a Most Loved List that shows the users who have received the most hearts during the real-time broadcast.
