Twitter only posts?

Hello,

A feature to post Twitter only mentions of a topic would be useful to me.

Some subjects don't have any articles to fetch for a paper, but with the increased length of Twitetr posts, a Tweet (or Facebook post) might suffice as a piece of news, especially for niche subjects.

 

Just a thought.

Hi!  To be sure I understand, are you suggesting that we bring in and present the twitter post itself?  Or, rather, to pull in shared links/articles based on a twitter keyword search?

Yes, as social media are micro-news sites in their own right, if you present the Tweet, for example, that could be of interest when combined with other news sources. For very specific subjects, there might not be full articles about a subject, but people might like to keep abreast of discussion around a subject. 

Thanks
