Meerkat is trending. This is a fact. Partly it is trending because it’s a new name on the social media scene and partly because of its issues with Twitter’s Open Graph. But Meerkat is not new, nor is it innovative. It’s old and automated.

I had a Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, which unfortunately I didn’t Foodspot, but it was great. The meal the service it was excellent. But that’s not why I’m writing this blog. It was what happened hours after my visit that made my week!
