New Delhi: Reddit has officially launched its own live-blogging platform. It is called Reddit Live.
The Reddit Live feature was under semi-open beta testing was only accessible by Reddit employees and select beta testers, but has now been made available for everyone. Multiple users can now submit unlimited posts on a Reddit Live thread, and those watching will get live updates from all posters without having to refresh the thread.
Reddit Live updates support embedded tweets, which can in turn facilitate images, YouTube videos and article links. “These live threads exist outside of subreddits and are designed to be submitted, like any other link, to whichever (multiple) subreddits are relevant to the thread. Pictures, video, and more can be embedded in the updates by simply pasting a link,” mentioned the blog post.
