However, Twitter’s version has its limitations. For now, it can only be done within an application owned by Twitter called “TweetDeck,” not on Twitter’s website or using Twitter’s mobile apps. And there doesn’t appear to be a way to add commentary or context as with Storify unless a Twitter user takes that custom timeline and embeds it on a blog post. With the rollout of custom timelines, Twitter provided examples of its use from “The Voice” host Carson Daly, Politico.com and The Guardian using the tool to collect interesting Tweets.
Twitter said it will also begin to offer a way for developers to automate custom timeliness; for instance, they might create one that plucks Tweets using a keyword or phrase.
