If you're popular on Periscope, the livestreaming app will soon reward you as part of its new VIP program. The three-tier initiative is designed to incentivize creators who have invested time in using Twitter's live video option with tools that will help them make their audiences even bigger. In other words, it gives livestreamers a reason to use the platform more and make an effort to pad that follower total. Gold, Silver and Bronze levels require follower counts of 10,000, 30,000 and 100,000, respectively. There are also benchmarks for average viewer tallies and you'll need to be broadcasting at least twice a week.

So, what are the perks? All three levels will get badges attached to their profile so everyone will know they're a VIP. The Bronze tier includes care packages to help you look your best, a boost in search results and a list of tips and tricks. Members of the Silver level gain prioritized support, access to "future discovery products," private streams with Periscope for a behind-the-scenes look and a Slack channel for fellow VIPs. The top Gold tier includes all the stuff from Bronze and Silver levels with the ability to collaborate directly with the Periscope team.

If you meet the criteria, you can apply for Periscope's VIP program right here. It's free, but those are some hefty requirements you'll need to fulfill in order to gain access. Though the program was announced this week, the sign-up page officially lists it as "coming soon."
