With all the hubbub over Meerkat the past couple of weeks, I thought for sure that someone would have beaten me to this already.
Introducing, Meerkat Roulette.
I’m using Twitter’s search API to grab recent tweets containing “mrk.tv” and cycling through them randomly. You’ll probably see some repeats because of Twitter’s rate limiting, and also a lot of streams that are already over. I probably won’t fix that because I’ve already spent too much time on this stupid idea.
And since it’s the breakout app! at SXSW this year, I added a filter to only include streams tagged #sxsw. This one gets much more interesting at night :)
