Meerkat, the hit live-streaming app, said today it now allows users to follow each other directly through its app.

Until today, there was no way for users to follow each other directly. Instead, they had to do it through Twitter. But last Friday, Twitter shut off Meerkat’s access to its social graph, a step that limited how the new app — which launched at the end of last month — could grow its user base.

Earlier today, Meerkat announced that users could search for and follow people on the Web. Then, it announced, via a tweet, that it was not possible to do so directly in the app. The way to do so, it said, was through the so-called “Stream over” page that users see when a live stream is, well, over.
