Twitter Rolls Out Audio Streaming On iOS

  Twitter Rolls Out Audio Streaming On iOS Twitter and Periscope users on iOS can now stream with just audio, if they so desire.Twitter (TWTR) originally launched as a microblogging platform that limited its users to 140-character bursts of text and images, but the site keeps giving users more ways to share content. On Friday, Twitter announced that all users on iOS could broadcast live audio-only streams to their followers, in an expansion of the app’s Periscope functionality.

  Twitter puts live streams at the top of your feed

Twitter is making it easier to catch live broadcasts from the accounts you follow. Now, anytime an account you follow starts a stream and shares a tweet about it, the broadcast will be pushed to the top of your timeline. The company announced the new feature in a tweet.

Twitter has surfaced certain live streams, like NFL games, before and its Happening Now feature kept users abreast of ongoing events by putting them at the top of their feeds. This, however, is the first time all live streams from any of the accounts a user follows will top the timeline. The new feature is rolling out now on both iOS and Android.

3 reasons to claim Social Security as early as possible .
You'll often hear that filing early is a bad idea. Consider that myth debunked.Smack in the middle of that window is full retirement age, otherwise known as the age at which you can collect the full monthly benefit your work record entitles you to. And not surprisingly, many financial experts will urge you to wait until full retirement age -- which is either 66, 67, or 66 and a certain number of months -- or even beyond to get the most money possible out of Social Security. That's because for each year you file before full retirement age, you'll lose a portion of your monthly benefits -- and quite potentially for life.
