Twitter Quashes New Video App Meerkat by Removing Connections Import
Meerkat, a new video app for iOS that allows users to live stream to anyone in the world using their iPhone or iPad, has quickly become the 59th most popular social networking app in the App Store. Simply start a stream, Meerkat tweets a link to it, and anyone can view it from a laptop, phone or tablet. Twitter, however, may have killed the buzz surrounding the app when it removed Meerkat's ability to import social connections from its platform. This means the app will force users to manually build their friend networks and not simply be notified through Twitter. Critics are skeptical as to whether the app can make it on its own.
