Twitter Streets: Hot Trends Today- September 25
LinkedIn Introduces Stories Feature
On Thursday, LinkedIn announced its own version of stories dubbed, “LinkedIn Stories”. According to the Microsoft-owned, employment-oriented online service, the new move enables users an easy way to share what’s happening in their professional lives, and encourage light hearted, work-life related conversations.
Similar to Instagram stories, you can post a story on the App by tapping the plus sign in the upper left corner to open the camera, record a video or take a photo, add a sticker and/or text (optional) and mention users using @.
LinkedIn Stories has began rolling out in the U.S and Canada with plans of a global expansion at a later date.

I really am done with every app adding stories. I’m over it. Stop it. LinkedIn doesn’t need stories. It needs a job posting feed and that’s it. pic.twitter.com/UrV92V0379

“Black Widow’s” David Harbour jokingly wrote on Instagram, “Sorry. You’re gonna have to wait til May 2021 before you can pop a straw thru my helmeted head and sip your Diet Coke, and marvel (get it, get it) at how the RG packs his whole overly fleshy self into that super suit.”
