Like a lot of people around the world I love stories as a way of communication, which is why I like the Twitter Stories that just came out. Twitter just released a new user name called @TwitterStories. Twitter Stories are exactly how they sound. Stories about how Twitter has helped shape people’s lives in numerous ways from finding your soul mate to how the FBI is announcing top 10 criminals being caught through their Twitter channel. Yes you could say it is a bit self-promotional, but they have some really great stories out there.
As a side note before I go farther, I know that Facebook has done similar stories on their blog in the past as well. So definitely keep an eye out for other stories out there.
For those who doubt the power of social networking in today’s world this is a perfect example of how sites, such as Twitter are creating new bounds between people.
