Storify Compiles 10 Most Quoted Tweets of the Year

Storify has just released its compilation of the top 10 tweets of the year. The number one tweet was Bill Gates’ farewell post to Steve Jobs. Second place was Sohaib Athar’s observation of a helicopter over Abbottabad, Pakistan, which turned out to be the first report of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

Storify is a tool for curating conversations that take place on the Web. Its recent redesign turned Storify into a front-page news site of the social Web. This year, Storify has played an instrumental role in documenting the news unfolding live on social media, such as the Occupy Wall Street protests. Storify users quoted nearly 3 million tweets this year in their embeddable social media stories.

“With hundreds of millions of Tweets being sent every day along with all other types of social media, it’s never been more important to surface the voices that matter,” says Storify co-founder Burt Herman. “These are the handpicked best of the best by our community, who are the top curators combing through social media so readers don’t have to sift through the noise on their own.”

Here are Storify’s top 10 most quoted tweets of the year.
