“The Insta360 Nano is the premier clip-on camera solution for iPhones, and we are pleased that our collaboration with Twitter allowed us to be the first camera to support this exciting new feature,” said Maximilian Richter, Insta360’s Senior Marketing & Partnership Manager. “Twitter live 360 video brings you one step closer to being there, and Insta360’s line of cameras are the ideal and easy-to-use equipment solution to make any video extraordinary.”

While everyone on Twitter and Periscope can watch live 360 videos, currently only selected partners can go live in 360 via Periscope.
