The Apple News account on Twitter appears to be up and running, promoting stories as of last night. So far the feed has sent out a handful of sports and news items with links that direct users back to the Apple News app. Anyone clicking on story links from a device without Apple News or in a country where Apple News isn’t available will be redirected to the affiliate news provider’s site instead.
Apple is also teasing the Apple News Top Stories feed through the Twitter account, but those links only work for iOS users with an Apple News-compatible device. Everyone else is given the error message pictured below when clicking on those links. The move seems to be in keeping with Apple’s push to use human curation to set its offerings apart from other algorithm-based methods of content delivery.
