In the announcement made on Medium, Periscope said:

We think it’s really important for broadcasters to have a home on the Web, and today’s launch is just the beginning.

After hitting the 10 million user milestone, Periscope wanted to ensure continued growth. It’s traditionally a mobile-centric app, so Web profiles could help create a little more engagement for desktop users.
