Twitter wants to show their users how the microblogging platform has helped others and for that purpose they have launched Twitter Tales a new offering that is meant to inspire and motivate others to use Twitter in fun, effective and interesting ways.
Twitter’s own communications staffer Carolyn Penner said on the company’s official blog that Twitter Tales is meant to display:
“a growing set of articles that highlights creative individuals and businesses from all corners of the world that help make Twitter awesome.”
If you have a story to share, you can send it to [email protected] and you could be one of the showcases stories.
The pool of accepted stories so far vary greatly in their scope; @caltrain was one of the first and they appear to be a community account for San Francisco commuters, @thebloggess, a popular digital humor writer and @natashabadhwa a filmmaker in New Delhi.
We reported a little while back that YouTube was offering their own “stories” section, almost a way to stroke their own egos, but ultimately these stories are a great way to showcase the proper way to use social networking.
