Today I present you Chirpstory  is an application to help manage your Twitter account and share Tweets in a fun and information fashion. A complete curation experience you won't find anywhere else.Chirpstory automatically loads the latest Tweets from your Twitter stream. You can also load Tweets from a specific user, keyword, or list and Organize favorite Tweets, conversations, and themed hashtags together to create fun and easy-to-read narratives out of the Twitter experience. Simply drag and drop Tweets into a timeline, edit, and then share your "Story" with the world. Here I made my Chirpstory and in this story I will write my favorite curation edtools in #education20 .

Now let's see how to use this social media curation tool 

How do I start?

A Twitter account is all that you need to start using Chirpstory. Simply login via Twitter, click to allow Chirpstory access to your account, and you're ready to go. Chirpstory will not send Tweets or alter your account information without your permission.

Save interesting Stories to your Storybook

Chirpstory lets you comment on favorite Stories and save them to your Storybook. When logged in, simply click the small star mark next to a Story's title to add it to your Storybook. You also have the option of simultaneously sharing the Story's URL as a Tweet to notify your friends.

Check who's Chirpifying your Tweets

Chirpstory automatically notifies you of Stories featuring your Tweets. Click the "Stories With Your Tweets" button in the upper right-hand corner and see who's quoting you.

Delete your Tweets from Stories

If you wish to delete your Tweets from a Story, you can either contact the Story's author or delete your Tweets directly. Open the Story's "Options" Menu and select "Delete Your Tweets." This will display a "Delete" button in the upper right hand corner of your Tweets, allowing you to remove them at your discretion.
