👀 What is Twitter Live?
Rich media, such as videos, GIFs, or images, make your tweets more engaging (and more likely to be seen). You can also add live video to your tweets. Anyone can go live from mobile, but only certain Twitter users have access to the desktop option, Media Studio Producer. As of Q2 2021, Twitter had 206 million daily active users worldwide.
If you want to go live on Twitter using Restream, you have two choices. You can launch Restream Studio and go live directly from your browser or connect Restream to live streaming software such as OBS Studio. With both options, you can multistream to Twitter, Facebook, Twitch, YouTube, and more than thirty other platforms at the same time.

🦑 Broadcasting software
Restream works seamlessly with major encoding software like OBS Studio. If you prefer to go live on Twitter using OBS, you can still use Restream to multistream to other platforms, like Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn, at the same time. All it takes is adding your live streaming channels to your Restream account, then pasting your Restream stream key into OBS. You can still use Restream Events to schedule live events using OBS Studio as well. Simply select “Encoder | RTMP” when setting up your event, and you’ll get the URL and stream key you need to plug into OBS.
