Twitter Starts Breaking Meerkat Features By Limiting Social Graph Access

Meerkat is a fast-rising, Twitter-centric live video broadcasting platform that seems to be gaining quite the fanbase since launching just a few weeks back. Viewers of your livestream can tweet at you and have those tweets appear on your screen, allowing for quick, on-the-fly interaction and discussion.

Twitter, with the acquisition of Meerkat, can now focus on building video twitting capability, but Twitter will also be limiting social graph access – which will be only allowed, perhaps, for paid account in the future.
