17 Things People Who Are Addicted To Meerkat Are Sick Of Hearing

SMH if you're not a thinkfluencer using the latest in social video livestreaming, you might as well just get a flip phone.

2. "What IS Meerkat?"

Jesus fucking Christ how many times do I have to tell people: it's the latest, hottest app in social broadcasting that's taking the tech world by storm. Am I an echo? Can people not hear me? Are you literally not following me on Twitter?

3. "I don't understand why you'd ever want to stream stuff to strangers on the internet."

I guess if you're in your petty little plebian mind prison with nothing to say and nothing to think and nothing interesting ever going on in your life, maybe this wouldn't appeal to you.

4. "Please stop talking about Meerkat."

YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT A REVOLUTION IS HAPPENING AND IT'S CALLED MEER FUCKING KAT

5. "Only weird randos use Meerkat, not anyone I'd want to actually see livestream their lives."

Hey idiotface, did it hurt when you fell from idiot Heaven? Because it looks like you hit every idiot brand on the way down.

6. "Why are you pointing your phone at me? Are you videotaping right now?"

Videotaping? Um, what am I, your dad at your high school production of Godspell? No, and not just because he never fucking showed up.

8. "I wish Twitter had its own livestreaming video thingy so I didn't have to go to another app"

I LOVE Meerkat but it would be better if Twitter had it's own live streaming video thingy that's "native in feed".

[cannot reply due to rage blackout]

9. "I'm not sure of the impact of Meerkat." (said by someone in the music industry)

If anyone in music isn't sure impact of #Meerkat...there are about 15 high-quality front row streams of Lil Wayne at A-Grade party right now

WEEZY BABY

10. "Stop saying you're 'Meerkating so hard' it's not a thing don't say that stop trying to make that a thing."

I'm gonna @AppMeerkat so hard when I'm at @sxsw

Let's remember who the thinkfluencer is here, pal. I'll give you a little hint: it's not you.

11. "Meerkat is the breakout app of this year's SXSW."

A social app broke out at SXSW. In 2015. The crazy story of Meerkat: http://t.co/11Ro0Ov3nT

NO. IT IS NOT JUST THE BREAKOUT APP OF SXSW. IT IS THE GREATEST TECHNOLOGICAL STEP IN DECADES. IT'S NOT A FAD. IT'S A WAY OF LIFE.

12. "I'm not downloading any new app until the actress who played Punky Brewster does."

GUESS WHAT BITCHES?

13. "I'm the executive at Twitter who made the decision to cut off Meerkat's ability to get your Twitter contacts and then bought a separate streaming app."

MTV

You can try to keep us Meerkatters down, but guess what. We're Meerkating more than ever and we can't be stopped. You can break our social graph but you can never break our spirits.

14. "It's the future of journalism." (said by some faker to The Verge)

Look lady, I was down with Meerkat from DAY ONE. You Johnny-come-latelys are now showing up and it's like.... um, didn't you listen when I was thinkfluencing literally 2 weeks ago?

15. "I was trying to tell you about how my father has cancer, and you kept derailing the conversation to talk about Meerkat."

SXSW is moot. No one can learn about anything new because every conversation ends up being about Meerkat.

Cancer can be cured. Addiction to Meerkat can't.

17. "I'm leaving you."

Meerkat + Twitter + GoPro = Future of news. By 2020, 6 billion people will own a smartphone.

The fucking future of news, baby. The fucking future of news.
