Periscope makes its debut on Android

The Periscope’s been praised for simplifying lifestreaming and for the two months it’s been out on on the iPhone, the internet’s discovered people really want to know what’s in a stranger’s refrigerator (sriracha and a distinct inability to cook, in my case) and a new and exciting way to get free cable (or at least, free pay-per-view).

Android users can finally get in on the Perscoping that goes on from the streaming of celebs and want-to-be-celebs, if that’s your thing. Some people believe Periscope can a force for “citizen journalism“, but that’s only true in a fraction of a percent of its use.

Let’s face it — when was the last time you heard someone talk about “Frontline” and not “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”? There you  go.

No word as to when/if Perscope’s mortal enemy, Meerkat, will raise itself on its haunches for Google’s little green robot.
