In a recent official statement, Twitter claimed than a million people signed into Periscope during the first 10 days after it released the app.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
The numbers were revealed by Dick Costolo himself during the company’s first quarter earnings announcement.
This is an impressive success for Periscope, if you compare with the 120,000 users Meerkat had 3 weeks after its launch. Of course, being the first app, Meerkat might have actually helped Periscope’s popularity indirectly.
Periscope launched in late March after Twitter acquired it back in January but the app is still not available to Android users, on the contrary of Meerkat who launched on Android a few weeks ago.
Could that be enough of a factor to save Meerkat?
