While livestreaming is nothing new, Meerkat, an easy-to-use mobile app, makes it easier than it’s ever been. The Meerkat app links with Twitter accounts, letting a person on one side of the phone stream a live video feed of whatever they’re looking at — or a video selfie. When you use Meerkat to share video, it automatically tweets a message that says you’re broadcasting live, with a link people can click to watch.

After connecting Meerkat with your Twitter account, you’ve got two options: stream and schedule. Stream lets you immediately broadcast live straight from your camera to the internet. Schedule, well, that seems self-explanatory. You also have “following” and “followers” just like Twitter.

If you haven’t yet been asked by friends or co-workers to Meerkat, chances are you will soon.
