My Most Popular Storify Stories

Since soon after I started blogging, I have used Twitter extensively, and have put tweets from Twitter discussions together into “stories” using Storify. I have been surprised at how many views some of these stories have gotten. (A couple of my stories are popular enough that they could have made it into my list of most popular posts.) So I decided to systematically see which ones have been most popular (starting by leaving aside anything with less than 200 views). Here is the result. I cover a lot of topics in Tweets that I don’t have time to write full-scale blog posts on, so I think you will find something of interest in this list of my top 37 Storify stories. And many of my favorite stories didn’t manage to get 200  views yet in order to make this list. You can find all of my stories here.

Here is the list of my most popular sets of storified tweets with links, and the number of views as of August 5, 2014 next to each link:
