Lately everyone’s talking about Meerkat, the social media app that enables users to livestream videos over Twitter.
Though Twitter pulled the rug out from under Meerkat a few days into South by Southwest’s Interactive Conference, the app still stole the show, with people flocking to Apple’s App Store to download and use it.
Pete Cashmore, Mashable’s founder and CEO, took Meerkat for a spin as he talked with SXSW exhibitors and tested out new tech toys as many tuned in to watch. Cashmore’s livestream of Mashable’s house party garnered more than 2,300 viewers.

It was a move one might expect from a tech publication and tech-obsessed executive. Founded in 2005, Mashable now has more than 42 million monthly visitors and more than 21 million social media followers who engage with the publisher’s articles on digital innovation and technology trends.
