Video streaming App launched by Twitter, as it blocks rival Meerkat

Twitter launched a video streaming app called Periscope, which it had purchased in January 2015, .This comes after after reports that it had blocked a rival app called Meerkat..Meerkat relies heavily on Twitter and has become hugely popular in the month since its launch.
Twitter's announcement comes on the same day that Meerkat unveiled a list of investors that included Silicon Valley venture capitalists Greylock Partners and Sound Ventures, Ashton Kutcher's private equity investment arm.
Meerkat's new round of funding is widely expected to have raised millions of dollars.
The app, which already boasts celebrity users such as talk show host Jimmy Fallon, lets people stream videos that cannot be rewatched.
the difference in Periscope  and Meerkat is that unlike Meerkat, Periscope allows users to save and replay videos later,
