#USA Tumblr adds live video, but with a twist




Live video is coming to Tumblr! However, the social blogging service isn’t bringing out its own live video platform — instead it’s partnering with YouNow, YouTube, Kanvas and Upclose to bring live broadcasting to its users.

Tumblr is working with a number of media companies, including Refinery29, MTV and The Huffington Post to bring live content to Tumblr. (Disclosure: Mashable is also one of the brands that will be bringing live video to Tumblr).

Users will be able to share live video to Tumblr from YouNow, Upclose or YouTube after they connect those accounts with their Tumblr account.
