Today, Reddit officially launched its own live-blogging platform. The company calls it Reddit Live and the feature has actually been in “semi-open beta” for a few months now – you may have stumbled across its threads covering Twitch Plays Pokemon and the conflict in Ukraine.
During the initial beta
period, only Reddit employees were able to create these live streams
and authorize trusted “reporters” to contribute. Now, anyone can use
Reddit Live and submit their ongoing threads to a dedicated subreddit.
