Periscope is a new live streaming app from Twitter. You can watch and see in real time what the sharer is seeing. It is available from the App Store and the Google Play Store.
You can hear what is going on and post messages to the user. The other watchers can see the messages. The one filming can not respond. They can see the messages and even flip the camera and speak live to the audience.
All you have to do is follow someone on Twitter and look for the post like above. Mash on the link and enjoy the show.
