Twitter Will Cover Local News during Major Events

In an attempt to push its video contents, Twitter has now launched a new live streaming section on its website. The latest addition will broadcast local contents during major events and will appear in users’ main feed.

In an official statement to BuzzFeed, Twitter video GM Kayvon Beykpour stated, “We’re continuing to work on new ways we can surface credible and relevant information to help people stay informed. By pairing live video with the conversation on Twitter, there is no faster way to see what’s happening in the world.”

This latest move comes as part of Twitter’s latest partnerships with local news stations and the contents will be available to users outside of the United States.

In case you are interested in watching the live feed while browsing your main feed, you will be able to create a special feed alongside video contents
