    "We have seen incredible growth in our community and the number of live broadcasts created on Periscope over the past year," Periscope CEO and co-founder Kayvon Beykpour was quoted as saying.

    Periscope has become an indispensable broadcast tool for journalists, musicians, athletes and people to share the world around them.

    "People are using Periscope to share what is happening in the world around them, so we felt it was time to evolve beyond the restraint of 24 hours and allow this content to stay in the public record," Beykpour added.
