Live broadcasting has become an extremely popular thing on social media platforms like Twitter. Through live video streams, you can share moments, connect with your followers, and grow your audience in real time.If you have an iPhone or iPad, you can easily go live on Twitter’s platform with just a few steps. Let me show you how you can go live on twitter from your iPhone or iPad easily without any hassle.

If you are planning to go live on twitter then there are a few tips and tricks that I would like to share with you. Before you begin there are a few requirements that you need to fulfil. You need to have the Twitter app installed on your device and a Twitter account. Make sure you are in a location with good lighting so your viewers can see you clearly. Position yourself centrally in the frame and prop your phone or tablet in landscape orientation for best results.Close any apps running in the background that could cause issue with your live stream. You’ll also want to connect your device to a strong WiFi network or turn on cellular data to prevent lag and freezing.

Once you have these, you can go live on Twitter by tapping the live video icon as you compose a tweet, entering an optional description for your live broadcast, and tapping “Go live” to start your broadcast. You can also add a location if desired. I am going to go into mare detail and give you a step by step guide. Let’s get started!

How to go live on Twitter from iPhone or iPad?

  1. To begin, open the Twitter app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap the compose button on the top right, represented by a quill icon. This will open a new tweet window.
  3. In the text field, you can enter any caption or notes about your upcoming video.
  4. Then tap the camera icon next to the text field. This will launch your phone’s camera from within Twitter.
  5. At the bottom of the screen, click on live and Twitter will prepare to begin streaming from your camera.
  6. You can toggle between the rear and front cameras before you start.
  7. When ready, tap Go Live and your live video will instantly start broadcasting to your followers.
  8. If you want viewers to hear your microphone audio, make sure to enable the mic access when beginning your stream. You can mute or unmute the mic during the broadcast.
  9. When you are ready to finish your live stream, simply tap End Live Video at the top of the screen.
  10. If you want to permanently save the live video, tap the three dots at the top right corner during your broadcast.
  11. Select Save Live Video and it will save directly to your camera roll once ended.

While streaming, you can tap anywhere on the screen to pull up your live viewer comments on the right side. Heart icons will appear when viewers react to your video.

Viewers can also send feedback and questions through comments that will appear during your broadcast. You can toggle the comments on and off by tapping the screen.

Your live video will then be available for replay on your Twitter profile for 24 hours. Other users can watch the full video for up to that duration.

It’s worth noting that there is also a dedicated live video broadcasting app available for download, but it is not necessary to use this app to go live on Twitter from an iPhone or iPad.

Until next time with another topic. Till then, Toodles.
