Gabe Rivera / Techmeme News:
Tweets can now become Techmeme headlines or discussion. So tweet away. — For as long as newsmakers have used Twitter, tweets have broken news stories. And yet for Techmeme, linking directly to tweets was never imperative - after all most newsworthy tweets are blogged within minutes, moreover with helpful context.
Gabe Rivera / @gaberivera:
We're now including tweets on Techmeme and this will be the first one. @-reply with something clever to join the Discussion!

Stowe Boyd / @stoweboyd: @gaberivera A very good idea. Will be interesting to see how you integrate tweets and long form.
Jonathan Wong / @armchairdude: @gaberivera Not sure if I like @Techmeme including tweets as headlines. The old Techmeme had an old-school purity to it that I will miss.

MG Siegler / @parislemon: Can we still not f**king swear on @techmeme? Will the s**t get bleeped out in the discussion section?
Robert Hof / @robhof: @gaberivera Great idea, been waiting for it. May need filtering mechanism, tho—like favor those with links vs. long list of similar tweets
