Web/iOS: Twitter is an awesome news source, and big breaking news is often covered on Twitter before it reaches other channels. Hash puts that news at your fingertips, without making you sift through hashtags.
As soon as you open the app or visit the site, you'll see the top trending stories for today's news, from all over the world. Select a story you want to know more about to see an article excerpt explaining the topic, and relevant tweets. If you want to add to the discussion, just click to retweet or reply as you normally would on Twitter. If you want to go to Twitter and follow the discussion directly, Hash provides the story's popular hashtags to give you a starting point.
While it integrates well with Twitter, one of the best things about Hash is that you don't need a Twitter account to use it. This way, if you like Twitter just for the news it offers, you have a way to access that without signing up or logging in.
