Periscope users watch 110 years-worth of video a day

Periscope broadcastTwitter-owned live video service Periscope claims that more than 110 years of live video are watched every day on its iOS and Android apps.

In a blog post marking the one-year anniversary of the service, Periscope said that since its launch on March 26, 2015, some 200 million broadcasts have been created.

“For everyone who joined us along the way, we hope this reaffirms that you are a part of something bigger. Thank you for making Periscope a vibrant global community– it means everything to us,” said Periscope.

The figures mark substantial growth for the service. Last August Periscope said it had passed the 10 million-account mark, with users watching the equivalent of 40 years of video per day.

Earlier this month, VentureBeat reported that Google is building a live-streaming app called YouTube Connect in a bid to take on rivals like Periscope and Facebook Live.
