Twitter said it wants everyone to get the most out of the micro-blogging site, and it has released a suite of tools that web publishers can use to tell compelling stories with tweets on their sites. The company has released a number of tools that can be used to achieve that purpose.

During the Flight conference, Twitter introduced an ecosystem of tools that are geared towards helping news publishers and other web publishers organize and seamlessly publish stories on websites and mobile app devices without any hassles – and to the delight of web consumers.

Twitter announced the release of Publisher, TweetDeck, and Curator among other new Collections API which can be used to organize and filter needed tweets containing texts and images to appear superb on websites and mobile devices. Twitter said it uses some of the tools to power its Moments feature on its micro-blogging site and others can do the same too.

“Today we announced a new Collections API that turns multiple Tweets into a single story with a single Collection ID, which can be used to edit, update and publish that story from any of the tools in our ecosystem,” Twitter announced.

Almost all the new tools are perfected to help users turn their tweets into a single great story that will compel and retain readership.

“Previously, when you wanted to publish a great story with Tweets, you had to manually manage a bunch of Tweet IDs, and embed them into your app or website one at a time,” Twitter said in a blog post. “With our new end-to-end ecosystem, we’ve simplified the storytelling process. Now you can use TweetDeck, Curator, Spredfast, Dataminr, ScribbleLive, Wayin, or Flowics to find and organize the Tweets you want into a single story.”

These tools can be used to display tweets in an organized manner using Embedded Timeslines on websites, and even in apps with Twitterkit on iOS and Android. The background colors and texts can be customized to make them readable and more appealing and as well blend perfectly into the design of your website or apps.    

All of these can be better displayed using a newly released responsive grid display that can be used to embed web or app stories. A user can access to be able to embed Twitter content, by entering the Collection ID or url for any story to be created and a preview of these will be shown before the user can authorize publishing on his site or app.
