Periscope makes it harder to creep on your friends' broadcasts

Ugh, what a tattle-tale.

Periscope has rolled out a tiny update that alerts streamers when people they follow join their broadcast, taking all the fun out of secretly creeping on your friends' digital lives. When streaming, the names and icons of people you follow will pop up on the left side of the video as soon as they start watching.

The company today tweeted a GIF of the new feature in action, though the update isn't detailed in a blog post. Sometimes, all you really need is 140 characters (plus an emoji and a moving picture).
