Twitter’s New “Related Headlines” Section Highlights Stories Attached To Tweets

twitter-logo-2012-newTwitter announced a new feature today that “surfaces stories behind a tweet.” The new “Related headlines” section highlights links to websites where a Tweet has been embedded, from the Tweet’s permalink page.

According to the announcement, the new feature will make it easier for users, “To discover stories that provide more context.”

Using a Tweet posted in April by Jason Collins, the first NBA player to come out publicly, Twitter demonstrated how the new feature lists the news stories where the specific Tweet had been embedded.

From the Related headlines section, users can see where @jasoncollins34′s Tweet was embedded on ESPN, Fox Sports, and Mashable, along with six other sites.
