Twitter has joined the ranks of competitors such as Facebook and YouTube by adding 360-degree live video streams in the company’s latest move to become a home to more than just 140-character messages.

The feature, made available Dec. 28, is limited in scope. While all users of Twitter and its streaming video service, Periscope, can view the immersive virtual reality experiences, only those with specific credentials, such as broadcasters, will be able to use the technology to create their own 360-degree streams.
