Launched in late March this year, the app quickly challenged Meerkat’s sudden and fragile leadership on the livestreaming market. The two apps present comparable features but Periscope wasn’t available on Android until May – since then, Meerkat has been unseat as the crowd’s favourite.
In an official post on Medium, the Periscope team announced that it surpassed the 10 million registered users mark, 4 months after Twitter took the wrapper off it. According to their numbers, 40 years of video are watched every day and Periscope counts as many as 2 million daily active users as we speak. All lights are green!
Periscope doubled its Time Watched per Day in just 2 months. This graph does not include views on the Web and Replays.

According to Periscope, DAU is not what best measures its success but the May spike and the active user acquisition that follow is quite impressive.
All numbers are trending upwards, and Twitter must be VERY happy about it. Between the resignation of its long-time CEO, its stock price tumble and its flagrant lack of game-changing innovations, it’s facing many difficulties for a few months already, and knowing that their acquisition is paying dividends must relieve the whole company.
Like all official statements, Periscope did not shed light on points that may be more negative. Or maybe there isn’t any?
