Twitter’s Project Lightning to Curate News
Snapchat, meet CNN. The social networking service is working on an app that will wade through the big news of the day, showing users live events that others are tweeting about — everything from music festivals to breaking news. Each event will be linked to a collection of tweets curated by Twitter editors, which will strongly emphasize photo and video. The firm’s foray into the news world rolls out later this year, but please note that you heard it here first.
