Meerkat is a livestreaming app launched in late February on Twitter that let's you view live video feeds from other users on Twitter (and comment on them through tweets). The "Rules of Meerkat" provides a quick understanding of what it's all about (plus a request to "Be kind):

  • Everything that happens on meerkat happens on Twitter.

  • Streams will be pushed to followers in real time via push notifications.

  • People can only watch it live. No reruns.

  • Watchers can restream any stream to their followers in real time.

  • Scheduled streams will be distributed in the community by their subscribers.

  • Your own streams can be kept locally on your phone, but never on the cloud.

  • Everyone can watch on web.

It's only available on iOS now but they say it'll be coming to Android soon. Let us know what you think of Meerkat on our social media accounts!
