Read original story on: TechCrunch

Coming off its explosive launch last week, Twitter’s live streaming platform Periscope is now trying to keep up the momentum with a new update, which aims to brings more customization features for users in stream discovery and live commenting. By splitting the live-streams into separate “Friends” and “Global” tabs, users can now easily cut through the clutter and find the streams from broadcasters they care about. Moreover, a new “Follower Only” mode limits in-stream comments to followers only, a good way to filter the rapid-fire live comment streams for popular Periscope users.
