A special Tweet: New Twitter Stories site shares users' experiences



stories_large_en.pngTwitter launched a new web site this week named "Twitter Stories." It features fascinating and sometimes very intimate stories that explain the impetus behind single tweets and tweeting in general, with an emphasis on how communicating on Twitter has impacted people's lives. Some of the stories, like the one about NASA astronaut Mike Massimino's first tweet from space in 2009, are already pretty famous. Some stories are by ordinary people who have experienced extraordinary things through tweeting.


If you have a story to share Twitter wants to hear from you. You can submit your story by mentioning @twitterstories in a tweet or by using the hashtag #twitterstories. Also include a link to a photo or video that helps illustrate your story. Twitter will select news stories each month to share on the site. You also can follow @twitterstories to get the latest updates.
