If you are a customer on any of our plans (fully free video to viewers) you may stream your broadcast to Twitter by using our custom Periscope integration or "Other RTMP" social streaming configuration as well. This is sometimes referred to as simulcasting - you'll be simultaneously broadcasting to both BoxCast and Twitter.

Note: Twitter has officially sunset Periscope as of March 31, 2021. What does this mean for broadcasters integrating with Periscope through BoxCast? Well, streaming via third-party API apps will work on Twitter. So if you've been using the Periscope integration, you should be largely unaffected by this. Viewers may watch your content right from the Twitter account. For more information, you may click here.
