It’s only been a few weeks since Twitter began rolling out its Explore tab on iOS and Android, and it is now adding live Periscope videos to its Top Trends section of the Explore tab. 

Twitter tested Explore for several months before bringing it to users at the end of January. As a way to concentrate everything that users would be interested in – Explore is the one place where users can “see what’s happening on Twitter.”

In the announcement last month Product designer at Twitter, Angela Lam, had explained that

Outside of your timeline, trends show you what topics are being discussed right now, Moments capture the most popular stories so you can catch up, and search helps you find anything and everything.

Explore brings all of that together so that users can be able to find trends and Moments. Now, in the “Top Trends” section of Explore, users can find live Periscope videos featured with a red “live” icon. Through Explore, users will now have full access to Periscopes features – the ability to interact (heart, comment on, and retweet) with these videos.

The move is important at this point, as it shows how much Twitter wants to continue to push its only live feature, while Facebook has long overtaken it and all other competitors.
