Edward Snowden's introduction to the Twittersphere proved a perfect introduction to Storify for our class. It taught us how to take a story that's developing online, specifically through social media, and assemble it in a meaningful way so others can easily follow along. Through the process of learning how to use Storify, I was able to synthesize a story that is all over the Internet into something you can simply scroll through to learn what's going on with one of the world's most famous fugitives. If you are confused about what Snowden is making international headlines for this time, or even if you're not, I suggest you check outmy first ever attempt at using Storify! I'm excited to explore the potential of this platform more in the future!
