The bad news is that, unlike posts from the feed, you can't add a tag to a story after it's already been posted.



The good news is that the stories are short, you can post as many as you like and they appear one after the other.


You can always upload the post again and add the tag this time. Your followers will see the same post twice, once with the tag and once without it.

If you don't want to annoy your followers with an identical slide, you can just delete the old story and try again.
