I finally played around with the app that has had everyone talking for the past month. Meerkat allows you to tweet live video to your followers. I only had access to this on my iPad so I was only broadcasting for a second. I started searching around on Twitter for some current live streams. There is something charming about this. All I could find tonight were some people streaming their walk home or their lunch. But, it was a lot of fun.
Could this be the start of something? What can we stream and what should we stream? Could Meerkat help us during rallies and political moments? What about music festivals?
What about bands streaming their own concerts and being able to control the stream and revenue models?
I think I could really found out my use cases once they have an Android client. For, now I am going to hold up my iPad mini and case my cat around the house.
