Micro-blogging website Twitter will not use its live streaming video app, Periscope, to broadcast its Q2 earnings, which are set to land next Tuesday, a media report said. Midway through 2015, Twitter started broadcasting its earnings calls via Periscope. Not many companies use live video for earnings, and it was an easy way for Twitter to promote one of its new products to investors, recode.net reported on Friday.

Twitter says that feedback from investors made the company realize that the video feed was not that important. But given Twitter’s interest in video and its vocal commitment to Periscope, this move is worth noting, the report added.
Twitter recently rolled out Periscope live button for everyone. The new feature connects a user directly to Periscope in order to allow them to quickly create a live video. Obviously, if a user does not have the Periscope app, they will be prompted to download it when they click on the live video option. The feature was earlier available only for some users but it has now been rolled out to everyone across Android and iOS devices.
