By tapping the screen viewers can give ‘hearts’ to a broadcaster on Periscope. Every now and then Periscope releases special hearts: bats for Halloween, baseballs for the World Series, balloons for birthdays etc. The newest addition: ‘dreidels’ for the Jewish Festival of Lights Hanukkah. A dreidel is a four sided spinning top, played with during Hanukkah. You can see them at the screenprint below.

By typing #hanukkah in the title of your scope before you start broadcasting, dreidels will appear if your viewers tap their screens to give hearts.
