Chris Jobling’s Stories

This is an archive of the tweet chat stories that I originally created on Storify ( between July 2014 and December 2017. I created it as a response to the announcement that Storify service was being retired in May 2018.

A screenshot of my Storify archive at it was on 21st December 2017.

How I made this

Storify has provided an export feature which is able to save a published story as HTML5, XML or JSON. I used the HTML5 option which creates a single web page with the images, styles and JavaScript embedded then used my browser’s Save page as Webpage, complete feature to create a complete local copy of the page and all its assets.

I created a new public project on GitHub ( and used the GitHub Pages feature to create a static website repository of these saved stories that is accessible via

By archiving a couple of handfuls of stories per session, the whole process took a few days.

Furthermore, the whole archive is just a set of files on my PC and I can create numerous copies. Git provides version control and support for distributed replication, so there’s no danger of losing the archive, even if GitHub shuts down.

Plus the archive, in the gh-pages branch of the repository, is just a static website and can be hosted on any server.

What’s next

I’ve demonstrated a solution to the archiving of a set of stories but the solution to the problem of curation of tweet chats is still open.
