San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2014
Livefyre, provider of the leading real-time conversation and social curation platform, today announced that Storify by Livefyre has joined the Twitter Certified Program, recognizing Livefyre’s commitment to building high-quality products that help customers successfully engage their audiences through real-time storytelling.
Storify, acquired by Livefyre in 2013, has long been recognized as the leading social storytelling platform by major media companies, brands, political organizations and non-profit organizations. Its acceptance into the Twitter Certified Program solidifies its position among the best tools and services leveraging Twitter’s platform.
Storify enables users to search for Tweets, status updates, photos and video across all major social networks from its editing dashboard, and then place media into a story with a simple drag-and-drop interface. Storify has over a million users, including NBC, Yahoo!, the BBC, CBC News, Cox Media Group, ESPN, The Weather Channel, Al Jazeera, the White House, Human Rights Watch and the British royal family.
Stories generated through Storify’s free version are published on storify.com and can be embedded on any website. Storify VIP includes advanced customization features such as private stories, real-time updates, custom sources, API integration and customized styling of embeds.
This recognition of quality comes as Livefyre is increasingly working with Twitter to help customers build exceptional social experiences for their fans. Most recently, the two companies worked with The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to develop first-of-its-kind technology to capture fan-submitted photos beside stars on the Oscars red carpet. Hundreds of fans received photos of themselves on the red carpet, resulting in 19 thousand uses of the hashtag and more than 81 million potential impressions.
“We’ve worked with Twitter for years to help our mutual customers forge stronger connections with their audiences,” said Jordan Kretchmer, Founder and CEO of Livefyre. “Recognizing Storify as one of the best solutions for brands on Twitter means we will be able to deliver our superior solutions to even more clients.”
Livefyre helps companies engage consumers through a combination of real-time conversation, social curation and social advertising. With Livefyre's social CMS, brands can integrate real-time social content into their websites, mobile apps, and advertisements and television broadcasts to increase viewer engagement, boost website traffic and drive revenue.

Livefyre acquired social storytelling platform Storify in September 2013 and social application provider Realtidbits in November 2013.
