The United States House of Representatives saw a dramatic moment recently as a number of its members held a sit-in to protest the failure of the body to hold a vote on gun restrictions.
With the chamber out of session, the television cameras that broadcast the normal procedures were turned off. Normally citizens could only read reports from the sit in after the fact or read social media updates, but thanks to online broadcasting tools, the members were able to broadcast themselves over the web,reported The Verge.
Many different organizations are now using tools such as Facebook Live and Periscope to communicate online. These services allow anyone with a smartphone to broadcast themselves across the Internet in real time, as well as interact by accept questions and comments from viewers.
While the Congressional protest in the United States is an extreme example, it shows the way in which people can bring outsiders into a certain situation. These video streaming services provide a greater level of interaction than writing tweets or sending Facebook messages.
