Twit­ter might not seem like the most ob­vi­ous app for Ap­ple TV, but the new 7.0 up­date has done more than just put a fresh coat of paint on the smart­phone and tablet ver­sion. That’s be­cause the big-screen edi­tion now en­ables you to view live 360-de­gree videos on your tele­vi­sion screen.

Twit­ter for Ap­ple TV also now taps into the Periscope Global Map, so you can eas­ily find user-cre­ated, livestream­ing con­tent from all over the world. Al­though video qual­ity is fairly low-res­o­lu­tion in live 360 mode, con­trol­ling the view with the Siri Re­mote’s touch pad is pretty neat. How­ever, it’s just a lit­tle too easy to ac­ci­den­tally tap and call up Re­port Broad­cast while view­ing, which could hide the con­tent be­ing viewed.

There are a lot of sports-re­lated vis­tas on of­fer, though that’s to be ex­pected.
