Storify -- storify.com -- is a way to curate stories using the social web including Twitter tweets, Flickr photos and YouTube videos. Re-order the elements any way you would like in your story.

Storify is made for the timely and the evergreen. It's very easy to aggregate tweets from a breaking story or from a glacially-paced slow conversation about a particular topic. The service is popular with professional journalists.
