I was getting kind of bored with Storify.
So, on Friday, I experimented with Brickflow.
It’s basically a slideshow form of Storify that lets you search a hashtag and curate your tweets, Instagrams, videos, tumblr posts, etc into a fun little embeddable slideshow.
(Sorry, I use a cheapo version of WordPress that won’t actually allow me to embed it here.)
Each item you want to curate can be dragged and dropped like tiles into a cinematic experience . Similar to Storify, you can break the elements up using blocks of text, too.
It’s like playing Tetris with tweets!
Here’s what the interface looks like:
The most obvious thing to “brick” together today was the inclement weather.

(TEASER: That new card game everyone loves, Cards Against Humanity, makes a cameo at the end.)
Brickflow is a little buggy, and I kept having problems logging in with my Facebook account and finding the story after I had created it.
Not sure if that’s an issue with Chrome or what.
But, overall, it was pretty cool.
I might consider using it to liven up my next live-tweeting extravaganza.
