Twitter Introduces Custom Timelines For Curating Lists of Tweets

Today Twitter announced custom timelines, a way for users to create curated, embeddable lists of tweets. Similar to the third-party service Storify, users can create a timeline of tweets about an event or issue, or tweets from a specific person or group. Twitter provided various examples — custom Twitter #Music timelines of the best music Vines and best songs, as well as a Q&A hosted by The Guardianin its announcement post. The new custom timelines feature will roll out to TweetDeck users in the next several days.
