As of March, the use of the Periscope application will no longer be possible, Twitter made the decision because, according to national media, it is no longer sustainable due to the loss of users within the social network.

The live video streaming application Periscope was created in 2015 in the USA by Kayvon Beykpour and Joe Bernstein. Before it was launched, it was already taken over by Twitter, but its use has decreased in recent years, which is why application maintenance is not sustainable.

If you are a user using this live video application, it should be noted that this is actually because Twitter started Twitter Live as this tool can be used from the application itself.

Even so, many people stopped using Periscope, leaving few users with the application again, creating an unsustainability for the tech company.

Periscope will disappear from the app stores in March 2021. However, this does not mean that live broadcasts made on Twitter will be removed as such videos can continue as reruns.
