Twitter users need only to log in to twitcam.com using an existing Twitter user name and password and press the 'go live' button. Twitcam automatically detects the camera, creates a page and live video player for the broadcast, and posts the link in the user's Twitter feed so followers can join in live.

Twitter-centric services for sharing photos and videos have been exploding and are in high demand by Twitter users. Twitcam fills the application void for those wanting to stream live and chat with their followers with a single click.

The service is also interactive as it enables viewers to chat over Twitter while watching the live feed. Twitcam is free and available today at http://www.twitcam.com.

Twitcam, which went from concept to launch in less than one week, was developed using the soon to be launched Livestream API (application programming interface).

The Livestream API handles live streaming scalability, server-based recording and player development. This frees developers to focus on the user experience and marketing their newly created service. With the Livestream API, other developers will be able to launch their own live streaming services in days.
