StorytellingPractitioners Daily: I Deserve Only Minimal Credit, Thanks

Almost daily, someone thanks me via Twitter for featuring him or her in the StorytellingPractitioners Daily. This week, I was also chided for a less-than-appropriate choice of content.

The publication is automatically generated every day by a site called, which “organizes links shared on Twitter [and apparently, now Facebook] into an easy-to-read newspaper-style format.”

I don’t know how content is chosen; I’m assuming it’s through some sort of algorithm.

For a Twitter-based publication, uses either the links tweeted by a person’s followers based on a hashtag, or in the case of StorytellingPractitioners Daily, the tweets of people on a given Twitter list.

To be included in StoryPractitioners Daily, a person or entity needs to be on my @AStoriedCareer StorytellingPractitioners list. My only role in choosing the content for StorytellingPractitioners Daily is having placed specific Twitter followers on my StorytellingPractitioners list.

If you want to be included in the StorytellingPractitioners Daily, follow @AStoriedCareer, and be sure I can discern from your profile that you should be on the StorytellingPractitioners list.

I appreciate the thanks, but I really don’t deserve them.
