Twitter Hounds Celebs to Switch from Meerkat to Periscope

According to TechCrunch, representatives from Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) are contacting celebrity users and encouraging them to using Twitter’s livestreaming app instead of Meerkat.

Further, Twitter has also reportedly contacted media companies, threating to limit their access to Amplify, as well.

“Twitter hounds every celebrity after they try Meerkat. Almost to the point of stalking,” a source said, according to TechCrunch. “Twitter is absolutely obsessed with Meerkat. They talk about it all the time to the point that the Periscope employees and founders are angry.”
