Periscope – the latest #SoMe for spreading the Palliative Care message?

Has anyone tried Periscope, the new live-streaming video app from Twitter? I used it earlier this week to watch an interview via health journalist (and all round social media star @croakeyblog) Melissa Sweet’s Periscope account. I’m unsure of the potential of this new app at the moment (it could be a great medium for the #thickenedliquidchallenge) but will try it out this weekend when I’m in Melbourne for the Medicine Social health and social media event. (Palliverse’s own Sonia Fullerton is one of the speakers.) You can watch live or on replay for 24 hours after the event.

If you’d like to play along, you can download the app here and follow @palliverse (and @Elissa_Campbell while you’re at it). I think it’s only for iOS at this stage – sorry Android users.

    • Thanks for joining in Christian. I only realised later that it only plays back in vertical, not horizontal, mode! I think I missed some of your comments for that reason. It was good practice for the APCC in September.

      • No worries! I still could hear and tell what was going on. I’m glad I was awake and on my iPad for it. It was nice to see it in action for FOAMed. Will be curious how conferences will think about this. I have a lot of thoughts on the subject after just watching you.
