You can save a single Tweet or bulk import if you choose to.

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.

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.

    Hi Dexter,
    I did not know about Wakelet although I’ve heard of it. Is it a Twitter tool? If you’d like to guest post for me about Wakelet or some other new tool or new website that would help bloggers, you’d be welcome.

      Hi Janice, no it’s not a Twitter tool it is along the same lines as Flipboard and it is basically taking over where Storify has left off. As you probably know Storify is closing. Wakelet is a lot like Storify and has added a very simple import tool so that you can migrate all your Storify stories over to WakeLet with little or no disturbance.
      With the Twitter side that have added a Twitter import feed, so now within a Wakelet Collection you can search relevant Tweets and add them to your collection.
      Yes I can add a guest post, would It be possible to get an account so I can login to create it?

    Hi Dexter, I haven’t used this one. I only used Storify a few times. How does it different from Flipboard? I love Flipboard for searching through great topics but the traffic has a high bounce rate from their site. Your thoughts? Thanks for sharing about Wakalet.
