Announcement of the creation of the Pennsylvania Highways Periscope page.

We all know the function of periscopes on submarines.  They are the instrument that sailors use to check out what is going on on the surface.  Just as that periscope helps see a wider view, there is now an app that can do the same thing.

Periscope was developed by Kayvon Beykpour and Joe Bernstein in 2014 and acquired by Twitter a year later.  The purpose of the app is to stream in real-time anything using a smartphone.  Hopefully I will be able to use it to live stream events such as ribbon-cutting ceremonies, project open houses, and other events related to the highway system.  As they say in the television business, “stay tuned.”
