How do I send hearts on Periscope?

On Twitter's broadcasting app Periscope users can send hearts to the person streaming as a way of showing support. To send hearts during a live broadcast just tap your display as many times as you want. Hearts are counted and tallied at the end of a broadcast and added to a user's individual total on their profile to show how popular their channel is.

Hearts are like the Like button on Facebook, or the thumbs up and thumbs down voting system on YouTube.
