Twitter Debuts “Story Behind the Tweet” Feature

Twitter continues to find new ways to insert itself into the conversation around big news stories. Its latest effort is to show “related headlines” linking to news articles that embed particular tweets into a blog or news site. Here’s an example:

Related News Headlines for an embedded Tweet

This example illustrates how Twitter’s Vine tweet announcing it had reached 40 million users was embedded in various technology news stories, including the headlines on Mashable and CNET news sites. Links are shown below the original tweet.

In announcing the change, Twitter said it’s hoping to provide more context for news. The headlines linking to news stories are designed to help users find more information about conversations taking place through tweets, which can be hard to decipher due to their extreme brevity.

Twitter’s announcement was titled, “New headlines feature offers story behind the Tweet.”
