Twitter Challenges Storify With New Custom Timelines | News & Opinion | PCMag.com
Twitter today unveiled custom timelines, which let users create a stream of tweets they choose and organize themselves.
The feature, housed within TweetDeck, sounds very similar to Storify, which lets users pull in tweets and other content from around the Web to create stories about certain events. On Twitter, users can create custom timelines by adding tweets by hand or programming tweets to automatically pop up using the company’s API.
“This means that when the conversation around an event or topic takes off on Twitter, you have the opportunity to create a timeline that surfaces what you believe to be the most noteworthy, relevant tweets,” Twitter said in a blog post.
