According to reports, Twitter has already acquired Periscope, a streaming video app – currently in closed beta- for a hefty $50 million. Yes, Twitter could have gone for Meerkat, an app that has already rolled out, however it chose Periscope over it. Why?

If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:

One apparent reason is because, when in closed beta, apps have still room for improvement. So Twitter is probably working to add a close-knit integration with its platform, while incorporating all the valuable feedback collected from users, during this testing period.

Another reason – and probably the most important – is that Twitter wants to actually broadcast videos. Up till now, publishers could add video-clips to their tweets. As Twitter becomes the leading destination for the real-time marketing and coverage of major events , the need for video streaming is imminent.

Is that Twitter’s take on Snapchat? Definitely. Expect some exciting new features on Twitter. Soon.
