In light of Twitter’s role in the recent Egyptian political crisis, a friend recently wondered when and how news outlets would start citing social media “citizen journalists.”

A new platform called Storify is one answer.

News outlets like The New York Times, Washington Post and others have already used Storify “stories,” which are amalgamations of Tweets, Flicker photos and YouTube videos that can be embedded on any website or blog.

Users can interact with the story by clicking on individual Tweets within it and communicating with the Twitter author.
