    This API will take live videos to the higher level to deliver extra high-quality content. To live stream tournaments and other e-sports events, Twitter has also partnered with the biggest organizations in the pro-gaming world such as ESL and Dreamhack.

    Big video cameras, editing boards, desktop editing software, satellite vans and some more will also be able to broadcast directly to Twitter through this API. This functionality works better than Twitter's existing Periscope Producer, which was designed just with an intention of attracting semi-pro web bloggers to Periscope.

    The Live video API is customizable for larger publishing enterprises when compared to Periscope Producer. It is also said that Twitter's Live API will work likewise to the Facebook's Live API which was launched last year to connect professional equipment to the social medium. It's not yet confirmed whether twitter will use Periscope as its live video app or not.

    Although the tech giant did not comment on its launch date, TechCrunch has learned that it will happen today and Telestream, Wirecast, and Livestream Switcher is the API partners who will help publishers to use this API.
