Storyful, a leader in discovering, validating, and acquiring social video for global media organizations, has announced the integration of the Snap API into the Storyful Newswire and its tech stack. The Snap API will feed video content, geolocation and time stamping data, allowing Storyful to sequence breaking news events and source user video.

Fully integrated into the Newswire, the Snap API allows Storyful to trace stories across multiple platforms in sequence to deliver unique social intelligence and video to newsrooms around the world. Storyful’s stack of discovery tools already ingests public data from social platforms including Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and YouTube. Internal technology then normalizes the data so Storyful journalists are able to source original content, track the spread of disinformation and make sense of breaking news.

This service allows partners to break news faster and deliver quality information and video that builds and retains audiences.
