Twitter Adds New Feature Called 'Twitter Stories'

Twitter- the platform where social media meets microblogging, has added new feature to its site - Twitter Stories.

Built in the same line as Facebook Stories, the new feature will give some insight to how the site can potentially make a positive impact on people's lives.

Users can access Twitter Stories via the URL The first set of stories have already made their way into the new service include - "a single Tweet that helped save a bookstore from going out of business; an athlete who took a hundred of his followers out to a crab dinner; and, Japanese fishermen who use Twitter to sell their catch before returning to shore," according to a report (opens in new tab) by IBN Live.

The main ambition behind this new feature, according to the site, is simple - to remind "us of the humanity behind Tweets that make the world smaller."

The site is further encourages people to share their own stories of how Twitter has changed their lives for good.

Twitter, despite spreading virtually all over the world at a rather steady pace, still lags behind the other social media platforms like Facebook.
