People can’t stop talking about Periscope, the Twitter-owned app that lets you livestream your surroundings to your followers, who can then comment and send “hearts” to the streamer in real-time.
But, if you’re popular on this particular network, you’ve already noticed one major flaw: Notifications are a mess.
In all sincerity, Periscope is going to want to throttle notifications today otherwise risk early adopters turning off notifications.

Yep, people are getting notifications every time someone follows them. And there’s no way to turn it off.
Considering the nature of the problem, Periscope could and should be able to fix these notification issues within a day or two. Hopefully, it doesn’t turn away new people that want to try out the app and see what the fuss is about.
We’ve reached out to Periscope and we’ll update the story when we learn more.
