Twitter launches Twitter Stories

John Moe Nov 2, 2011

There is often more to a tweet than the 140 or fewer characters that show up on the screen. To that end, Twitter’s new Twitter Stories site spotlights intriguing and/or inspirational tales that emerged from the microblogging site. Stuff like film critic Roger Ebert taking to Twitter after losing the ability to speak or a guy who tweeted that he needed a kidney and then he found one. Football player Chad Ochocinco took 100 of his followers out to dinner.
