It seems that Twitter has indeed embraced the live video phenomenon:
“Live video is the most immersive way to experience what’s happening around the world. From protests and monumental moments to celebrations and things that make us LOL, we’re making it easier for you to broadcast live video – straight from Twitter.”

When you’re ready, start your live video by pressing “Go Live.” When you’re broadcasting live on Twitter, your followers can see your live video on their timelines and they can tap in to join your video.
When you’re watching a live video, you can send hearts (which act as likes) and add comments by tapping the screen. Twitter live videos can be liked, retweeted, and shared anywhere.
