For nearly ten years, Storyful has perfected the art of content verification during breaking news events. Founded as the world’s first social media newswire, the Storyful Newswire arms newsrooms with the expertise and tools they need to report on the world’s most critical and timely events.
With 24/7 editorial services and breaking news alerts a click away, the Storyful Newswire enables our publishing partners to uncover, verify and interpret history as it happens.
Let’s take a look at some of the ways the Newswire can support your team:
1. A preview of the stories we’re working on
At Storyful, we understand that breaking news is as much about speed as it is about accuracy. To support our news partners’ workflows and increase transparency during breaking news, we recently integrated our Newswire with our editorial team’s Trello board to grant our Newswire partners insight into the videos and stories we are actively verifying, investigating and licensing.
Just click the calendar icon on the top right and you’ll be able to “follow” the stories that interest you:
Once we have an update on the developing story, you’ll receive a notification.
By sharing our news agenda and flagging the stories on our radar, we hope to arm partners with the foresight they need to better plan out their editorial calendars for the day.
2. Breaking news alert on homepage
As soon as our editorial team confirms an event, Newswire users are alerted and a red banner sits atop your Newswire homepage.
3. Collections of everything we know to date
Newswire users then receive an email alerting them to the breaking news development, including a link to a “Collection” of the social content, videos and insights we’ve verified, gathered and analyzed in relation to the event.
Collections string together related content and videos, equipping our partners with an easy way to find updates and historical context for a given event.
4. Slack alerts
We also recently integrated Newswire with Slack, allowing clients to subscribe to Newswire slack notifications. You’ll be notified via Slack every time a story is added to a breaking news collection you’re following.
Newswire users can also subscribe to receive updates via Storyful Pro, a private Twitter account with live updates on the status of videos as we verify, license and clear them.
5. Contact Newsroom Button
Our Contact Newsroom button enables publishers to directly reach out to Storyful’s editorial team and receive a response within minutes. Journalists around the world have used this feature to learn more about content uploaded to the Newswire, or upon finding a piece of content from the news event that requires verification.
