Four ways to use Meerkat for PR | LEWIS PR

Four ways to use Meerkat for PR | LEWIS PR.

 

The future of Meerkat is like the future of traditional journalism: it is yet uncertain. Twitter refused to share their API with the startup developed by Ben Rubin. They also recently bought Periscope, which is a direct competitor of the little furry animal. The upcoming weeks will tell if Meerkat is just a digital trend or a social platform that is here to stay.

Another downside of the app is that it is live stream only; you can’t save the stream for later. But you can store the video in your iPhone and download it to YouTube afterwards. You will though lose all comments and engagement from the original live stream. And the quality of the video is not ideal either.
