Here is a short video that explains how the Twitter Import Feature works
Wakelet came to our attention shortly after Storify announced its closure in December.
Wakelet has seen a significant number of Storify users migrate to the platform by using their slick import tool to save their content from being deleted in May.
This Twitter Import feature comes as a big relief to ex-Storify users who have been looking for an alternative platform to curate content – and a great bonus for existing Wakelet users.
Wakelet has used their Twitter Import feature to good effect by curating Tweets from ex-Storify members who have been sharing testimonials in favour of moving to Wakelet
Along with the new features that Storify users will find familiar, Wakelet has a host of other features that will come in handy to people making the switch – like the ability to message other users, connect and switch between numerous accounts, slick iPhone and Android apps, and greater customizability over the way collections look.

“When we heard that Storify was closing its doors, we immediately thought about all the content that their users could potentially lose. We quickly created an easy to use tool that lets people import this content to a new Wakelet account, where they can discover even more ways to use the platform!”
As well as being a powerful curation platform, it looks like Wakelet is certainly poised to become the go-to alternative to Storify.
