I supposed twitter can be used or any tool can be used for anything,but some tools are made with certain intended affordance by the creator that would make the tool less effective for certain functions. curation in a way is capturing things void of time (i probably drawing too much from museum), while twitter is fast pace timeline of interactive (or one way) discourse.... they seems to be inherently different.

i'm just automatically sceptical when 'one tool can be use for all' theme appear. but it is an interesting suggestion.

Many people learn one tool and then move on to others. I like to analyze each and use the best features of that particular 2.0 project. I use twitter as a push tool to share info for the most part.

Drag and Drop News Curation: Storify for iPad Is Here

Robin Good: The new Storify news curation tool is now available for the iPad, bringing the ease of drag and drop to the curation world. 

 

"Founded in 2009, this seven person company has done a remarkable job surviving the market and being one of the major players in the world of content curation.

 

[Storify has been adopted by] 22 out of top 25 news sites in the United States...

 

Just like Twitter has their trending topics, Storify’s service allows people to keep track of the relevant social media trending topics. Users are able to tell their own story about these major events (like Whitney Houston or Greece’s economic downfall or even Madonna’s Super Bowl halftime performance), and embed them on their own website.

 

Be your own crowd-sourced storyteller, by dragging in tweets, status updates, photos, and videos from a variety of social networks in order to help you create a better story and telling experience."

Image Discovery Tools: The New Real-Time Photo Search Engines

Image Discovery Tools: The New Real-Time Photo Search Engines | SM | Scoop.it

Robin Good: As the gathering and discovery of news and stories leverages increasingly the adoption of technology tools that scan, search, find and monitor specific topics or geolocations in real-time, it seems only natural that a new breed of real-time photo/image search engines are beginning to appear.

 

From the article intro: "Thanks to services like Twitter and Instagram, and the global 'smartphone saturation' phenomenon, live reporting from big events has never been easier.

 

No longer do we have to rely on professionals delivering content and images from these events, we have our extended social networks doing this for us.


And, because so many of these updates get fired into the 'public' timeline, virtually any update from anywhere can be found and shared in a matter of seconds.

 

...

 

With the London Olympics on our doorstep, expect to see 'real-time photo curation' explode into popularity and we've got some tools to help you be at the forefront of this revolution."

 

Useful. Resorceful. 8/10
