This is the beginning of the end for Twitter’s Periscope brand



Prediction: This is the beginning of the end for Twitter’s Periscope brand. For a company struggling to be profitable, it makes financial sense to guillotine (or downsize) redundant business units. See Geoff Golberg’s advice below. It’s sound advice; and it’s better to be safe than sorry. Getting fluent communications with Twitter is next to impossible, and a lack of clarity is the norm when you’re trying to understand them or reach out to them. Sadly, I expect that to remain the same.

The prudent thing for Periscope users to do is to ask (on a regular basis) that their followers also follow them on Twitter just in case the courtesy migration doesn’t happen. If you look at Geoff’s tweet above, he’s essentially betting the courtesy migration won’t happen. I’ve seen a screenshot from Twitter Support (via someone else) that gives credence to the guess that Twitter and Periscope won’t go through with a courtesy migration to sync up followings. The screenshot holds more water in my opinion versus Periscope users who simply “feel” that Twitter will provide a courtesy migration. Hey, that could happen, but I don’t think so. Of course, if Twitter keeps Periscope as a separate app forever, then this isn’t an issue, but let’s be real. Do you really feel Twitter is going to keep Periscope as is? Comment below. Vine wasn’t kept as is – it’s now Vine Camera.

Action step if you love Periscope: When making the ask of your Periscope followers, ask not JUST for the Twitter follow, but also ask the person to turn on livestream notifications MANUALLY within Twitter. That’s really the only way to be safe. It’s a 2-pronged ask, and it’s a pain in the ass, but hey.

Sadly, this ALL COULD’VE BEEN AVOIDED had Twitter not kept Periscope as a separate app for what seemed like an eternity. At the very least, on day one (March 24, 2015) followings SHOULD’VE BEEN sync’d up. #Eyeroll #OhWell

The cops arrested the #TrumpClimber around 6:34 PM ET, August 10th, 2016

Here’s how it ended, LOL

Periscope user Gerald Iorio got 386.4K viewers while he showed what was happening, with an additional 270K+ replay viewers (and growing) with a peak “concurrent” viewer reach of 204K, which means “204K total Periscope viewers viewing the same moment in real-time”

Addendum: On FacebookLive (user unknown) one broadcast had over 220K concurrent viewers. Let me tell you, heavy rain was in the forecast, and fortunately for the climber, the skies didn’t open up on him. That would’ve been bad.

Come on! Who doesn’t want a stronger data signal?

Your phone’s RSRP reading can indicate a stronger signal with the R79X ReachCase

Remember to interpret correctly, for example:

“-70 dBm” is stronger and therefore better than “-76 dBm”. The lower the better

If you don’t see an immediate jump in “bars” after you do the attach, you can try the steps below to toggle between RSRP and bars indicators. If you have questions, tweet the company @ReachCase

Step 1: Put your phone into field test mode and convert your bars to RSRP in dBm. To do this, follow the steps below:
Dial *3001#12345#* to enter field test mode
To return to home screen and maintain numerical RSRP:
Hold down the power button until you see the “slide the power off” bar.
Release the power button and do not power off your device
Press and hold the home button until you return to your home screen

Step 2: Your RSRP reading updates infrequently. Now refresh your signal:
Turn Airplane Mode ON
Wait 5 seconds
Turn Airplane Mode OFF
Wait 5 seconds for RSRP reading to stabilize
Note RSRP value when you hold bare phone in your hand
Tap the numerical value to show number of bars
Tap the bars to return to numerical RSRP
Stay put – your signal can vary significantly if you change location or direction

Step 3: Put R79X case on with the antenna extended and hold in same hand
Turn Airplane Mode ON
Wait 5 seconds
Turn Airplane Mode OFF
Wait 5 seconds for RSRP reading to stabilize
Note RSRP value when you hold the phone in your hand with the Reach Case antenna extended
Tap the numerical value to show number of bars
Tap the bars to return to numerical RSRP
