Twitter Stories Launched
Post sponsor: BuyRealMarketing – views on youtube
Twitter has launched a new product called Twitter Stories.
Basically the product is showing the ‘Best of Twitter’ – a maximum of 20 heartwarming stories about great things that have come from Twitter.
You can check out the site at: http://stories.twitter.com/
So far there are stories about:
– someone getting a kidney donation from the attention their tweet got
– how a man saved his mothers bookshop from exposure gained by Twitter
– Japanese fishermen selling their fish on Twitter before returning to land
+ many more.
You can then click on a story (some having pictures and video) where you can read a 200-300 summary about that particular piece, and follow the Twitter user who created the story.
You can submit your own story by sending a tweet to @twitterstories or by using the hashtag #twitterstories
Twitter Stories looks to be a great way to show the humanity behind Twitter and its users, which is sometimes harder to show in a 140 character tweet – think social good.
