    How to Stream Live Video on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Periscope 

    Highlights Live streaming is possible for anyone with a smartphone You can broadcast using popular apps like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram Your followers can see the action live, or see a replay later

    Live Streaming means broadcasting something on the Internet, as it happens. Until a couple of years ago, videos on the Internet were mostly recorded, edited and then uploaded to platforms like YouTube, Dailymotion, and so on. Thanks to the capable imaging and processing capabilities of today’s smartphone, live streaming has become possible for anyone. Every major social network, from Facebook, to Twitter, Instagram now allows you to broadcast yourself live, that your followers on those social networks can watch and interact with. The one that started it all – Meerkat, unfortunately shut down a few years later. But, Periscope – its competitor at the time – was acquired by Twitter and now the service is integrated within the platform.

    But let’s start with the basic question – why would anybody want to use live streaming? Well, there could be a multitude of reasons – maybe you’re at an interesting place or tourist destination or at an important life occasion like your marriage. Okay, seriously you shouldn’t be live streaming your marriage; maybe you can get someone else to do it. There are many creative ways that people from all walks of life are exploring with live streaming. Some are even using it to report an incident for the world to see.

    So how does one go about doing this? Here’s how to get started with streaming live video on various platforms:

    1) How to stream live video on YouTube
    YouTube recently launched live streaming on its popular video platform, but is currently restricted only to people who have verified accounts with more than 10,000 subscribers. The company has said that it will enable this feature for everybody else with time. If you happen to qualify already, then here’s how you can stream live on YouTube:

    Open the YouTube app on your smartphone. Press the camera symbol that appears on the top right side of the app if you’re on an iPhone (bottom right if Android). Click the ‘Go Live’ button. Write a title that describes what your live video is going to be about and click ‘Next’. It will ask you to take a selfie for the video thumbnail. You can retake it if you don’t like what you took before. Once you’re done, hit the ‘Go Live’ button to start the stream. Click ‘Finish’ on the top-right once you’re done.

    2) How to stream live video on Facebook
    Follow these steps to stream live on Facebook:

    Open the Facebook app on your smartphone. Below the What’s on your mind status update box, you’ll see a Live button. Tapping it for the first time shows you a demo video of how it’s done. You can either see it or click

    How to Allow or Prevent Twitter DMs From Anyone 

    Highlights You can allow anyone to message you on Twitter The private side of Twitter is popularly known as DMs Instructions vary, depending on platform

    Twitter has always had trouble creating an identity for itself, which explains its stagnant growth and why no one wants to buy it, even with its best efforts. Despite its image as a public network, there is very much a private side to the service as well

    Former Twitter CEO Dick Costolo was hacked 

    5:46 AM ETRecodeSHARES

    Even the former CEO of Twitter isn’t protected from the occasional security hack. Earlier this afternoon, three tweets were sent from Dick Costolo’s account claiming to be from a group called OurMine.

    The tweets have since been deleted and the Twitter account belonging to OurMine has been suspended.

    More from Recode:
    Why blockchains can be really bad. Or: How techno-futurists can ruin things.
    Capital Gains: Gargantuan late-stage funding rounds are the new black, I guess
    New York’s newest ride-hail app is feeding off of drivers’ desperation

    However, according to Costolo, it wasn’t his Twitter account that was hacked.

    Why Twitter chose to do battle with the CIA 

    11:47 AM ETCNBC.comSHARES

    The dispute between Twitter and the U.S. intelligence industry that broke into public view this week actually began as long ago as last fall, sources familiar with the matter tell CNBC.

    The Wall Street Journal reported this week that Twitter has cut off U.S. intelligence agencies from a service that sifts through the entire output of Twitter’s social media postings. That comes as Silicon Valley and the U.S. government have been engaged in a heated dispute over the degree to which American tech companies should cooperate with U.S. law enforcement and intelligence agencies, such as the FBI and CIA.

    It has not been clear exactly which entity in the vast U.S. intelligence apparatus was involved in the dispute with Twitter, but sources tell CNBC that it was a division of the CIA known as Open Source Enterprise. According to the CIA’s website, that unit is a part of the CIA’s directorate of digital innovation. It was created in the wake of recommendations by both the 9-11 Commission and the Iraq Weapons of Mass Destruction Commission that CIA focus more effort on gathering “open source” information

    Twitter’s updated Mac app wasn’t made by Twitter 

    Twitter’s oft-neglected app for Mac got a much-needed update today, adding support for inline GIFs, videos, quote-tweets, and other features that mobile users have had for ages. But while many users were glad to see the app getting attention, others criticized it for performance issues: laggy scrolling, repeating old notifications, and login issues. If the app doesn’t appear to be totally in harmony with Twitter’s efforts on mobile apps, here’s one possible reason: Twitter didn’t build it.

    Development of the Mac app was outsourced to a third-party developer, said Jonathan Wight, a former Twitter employee, in a tweet. The Verge confirmed that the app’s development was outsourced with other people familiar with the matter. One of those people said the developer is Black Pixel, a well-regarded digital studio based in Seattle. Black Pixel’s other clients have included ESPN, Starbucks, and the New York Times, according to its website.

    As a matter of pride, companies rarely advertise outsourcing

    There’s nothing scandalous about a software company employing a third-party developer to do work on its behalf, although as a matter of pride the larger company rarely advertises it. Slack, arguably the breakout app of the year, was initially designed by a third-party firm. (Which probably took a bit too much credit for its success.) And at least there is now a team working on Twitter’s Mac app — it previously was the responsibility of a single person, sources tell The Verge.

    But Twitter outsourcing its Mac app is still suggestive in a few ways. It says the desktop is not a priority for the company — which is fine! (Mobile is the future, etc.) It hints at the strain that Twitter faces as it attempts to build consistent, high-quality apps across many different platforms at once. And given Twitter’s recent layoffs, which I’m told delivered a critical hit to teams that support the service’s infrastructure, that strain is probably only increasing. I’d also love to know the terms of the contract — is Black Pixel done? Are they going to deliver an update once a quarter?

    Twitter and Black Pixel did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
