Twitter has confirmed that it will begin streaming live video around the clock. The idea behind always-on video is that it’ll give Twitter many more chances to sell valuable 15- and 30-second unskippable video ads. That should help the company monetize its platform more effectively once the project takes off. It’s worth noting that Twitter’s 24/7 plans currently seem to focus only on US-based content. Twitter is hoping 24/7 video streaming could turn the tide because analysts project that Twitter will bring in profits of one cent per share on revenue of $512 million for Q1. That’s about 14 percent less than the $595 million the company generated in revenue during the same quarter last year.
