Tweets are now run as full stories on Mattters (sometimes)

For some time we have included select tweets along with the stories from bloggers and other news sources on the main areas of the page. These kinds of tweets appear in large text and next to a pair of extremely large 'quotes'.

We have now gone a step further and are now including tweets, which link to something of interest, as introductions to full stories. This new kind of tweet appears next to a Twitter 'bird icon'. Above the tweet itself is a snippet of, and a photo from, the story that was tweeted about.

We've found that these 'tweeted stories' contribute to a more in-depth coverage of the topic of a channel - and are just plain adding more fun and goodness. We hope you agree!

If you want to see what these look like, the sports channels Tweeps often post good links in their tweets
