Periscope kind of came out of left field and many people doubted it, but now that it has 100 million broadcasts, Twitter (who owns the app) is finally bringing it directly to the iOS feed.

This means that users won't have to hop back and forth between Twitter to the Periscope app if they want to watch a livestream. Like with a lot of other Twitter-based video content, the Periscope broadcasts will not auto-play within a tweet, even for people who haven't signed up for Periscope. However, you will only be able to watch the app on Twitter, you will not be able to send hearts or comment to other viewers.

"Imagine scrolling through Twitter, reading about Mitch Oates' underwater adventures. You suddenly find yourself peering through a hole in your timeline out into his world, via his live broadcast," Periscope said in a blog post. "This adds a whole new dimension to Twitter."

Developers are hoping that this will open the door for Periscope to reach a bigger audience.

"And for everyone on Twitter, there's now a richer experience in your home timeline, search results, and on anyone's profile who's shared a Periscope," the live-streaming service said.

You should see the new features coming out in the next day or two or people who use Twitter on iOS, the features for Android and web users should be released soon.
