Browse story threads and build your NewsiT communities by selecting interests as you go. Get the headlines quick if you're in a hurry, or dig deeper, connect the dots. See who is saying what, and follow people who share your interests. Follow their posts and Tweets, and star or share what you like. Or start your own thread and invite your friends.
It's super simple. Post text or photos to a thread by tapping the contribute icon on the footer bar. Or tap the question mark if you want to ask others on the thread to help you investigate something: With one simple ‘?’ you’re the assignment editor and you have a team. Or start a whole new thread by tapping the 'pen and pad' icon on the top right of the header.
Find people on NewsiT who share your interests and follow their posts. The bigger your communities and 'circles of trust' the better your NewsiT experience.
