  5. 5. Twitter, Inc xx March 26, 2015 iOS Yes No Overall issues 1. Bandwidth - This is going to be an issue for all live streaming mobile services especially during music events where coverage is stretched. Meerkat was always having issue ‘Grabbing live stream’ and Periscope did do better. However with a Mashable stream the limit of viewers was around 1.1k and comments were disabled to a small group. 2. Repeat users - The content is a novelty. However over time with celebrities and brands uptake with more quality content we will see this being like (Game streaming) for the masses. 3. Only iOS and Desktop - Not just an issue for Android users but also TV users. The content should be accessible or streamable on more then these devices. Chromcast would be the next step for these apps. @ianmartinadams
