Last (But Not Least) Code Speakers: Twitter's Costolo and Periscope's Beykpour

We'll be livestreaming this one from my iPhone 6, natch!

Finally, here are the last speakers to be announced for our second annual Code Conference, which takes place next week.

Because Twitter has been so in the news for a variety of reasons, and because the livestreaming startup called Periscope that it bought this year has too, we thought that CEO Dick Costolo and founder Kayvon Beykpour would make a great pair to interview in our famous red hot seats. (Costolo has been grilled by us before, while Beykpour is a newbie.)

We hope to cover a lot of topics onstage about how the social communications company innovates (make or buy?), copyright issues around mobile video (we’ll ask speaker and CBS CEO Les Moonves about that dicey issue too) and how Twitter leaders think of the company as it moves forward (and how they cope with the constant scrutiny).

As usual, the event — held May 26 to 28 in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. — sold out quickly. But, as always, Re/code will be putting up extensive video clips of the interviews immediately and the entire sessions soon after.
