Curation, the concept of filtering and organizing online content to separate signal from the increasing noise in social media, is currently one of the most discussed buzz words in the web industry. The number of curation tools, however, is still (relatively) low: Storify, which launched during TechCrunch Disrupt, and Curated.by are probably the most prominent examples at this point.

Enter Chirpstory, a new and Twitter-focused curation tool, which lets you gather and share collections of tweets around a specific topic. Popular news items, events, or trends may see thousands of related tweets, retweets and spam posts in a matter of hours: Chirpstory offers a way to curate and “summarize” related tweets in the form of a continuous or thematic narrative.

Developed single-handedly by ex-Yahoo Japan employee Toshiaki Yoshida, Chirpstory is the international version of Togetter, Japan’s most popular Twitter curation service. Togetter (which is also Yoshida’s brainchild) was launched in September 2009 and currently boasts two million unique users.
