Storify is a service that allows users to easily create stories from social media posts, such as Tweets or Facebook posts. These stories can then be embedded into blogs or websites, or be retweeted.
The Storify API allows developers to create their own applications containing Stofify stories. Developers can get any story in JSON format by appending '.json' to the end of any Storify permalink (Read API). Developers can also create applications that let users create new stories (Write API).
