The ability for anyone and everyone to broadcast live video is just wild. This was the stuff of science fiction even just ten years ago. I don’t know if there’s room for both Periscope and Meerkat to succeed, but Periscope’s lower latency, higher image quality, and first-party status within Twitter will probably win out. I don’t think it matters that Meerkat launched three weeks sooner.
