Twitter and Periscope plan to let broadcasters push live 360-degree video to followers on the two social networks. Twitter sees the real-time, 360-degree video as yet another way for people to interact with personalities and publishers. Such videos will be marked with a "live 360" badge so people will know what type of video it is. The live video will be available to anyone to watch, and people will be able to view the video without dedicated 360-degree or VR headsets; instead, a tool allows people to pan around with their phone or drag the content around on the the screen. Twitter is limiting the number of broadcasters that are allowed to push live 360-degree video for now. A registration page for interested broadcasters is available on Periscope's web site.
