More than five years after being acquired by Twitter before it officially launched, Periscope is shutting down. Twitter made the announcement in a blog post saying the high cost of operating Periscope and declining usage are the main reasons for fading out the service.
In recent weeks most of Periscope live stream functionalities were added to Twitter as features, and streams created by Periscope that were shared on Twitter will continue to be available for replay. Users can also download an archive their data and content before Periscope goes off the app store in March or earlier.
