If you haven't yet caught up with the advent of easy live-streaming, right now it seems to be a battle between Periscope, Twitter's live-stream app, and Meerkat. Both broadcast live streaming video to Twitter, and when Periscope launched, Twitter cut off Meerkat's access to its social graph, creating a flurry of publicity for both apps, including:
- A primer on Periscope for the new user,
- Thoughts on how Periscope could be fixed, particularly when it comes to a feature some find creepy: location tagging,
- Reports that Meerkat's already had updates, with more fixes needed,
- Suggested accessories to improve your Meerkat videos, and
- Reassurances that Meerkat isn't dead yet.
