I’ll admit it. I am a Twitter junkie. No surprise.
Despite my lists and all my third party apps, my stream is a bear to keep on top of. I’ve been playing with yet another third party app and I like it.
paper.li organizes links shared on Twitter into an easy to read newspaper-style format. Newspapers can be created for any Twitter user or any #tag.
The resulting aggregated newspaper is convenient and attractive and may used by students and teachers to set up what we used to call “current awareness” pages. These pages neatly sort articles, posts, and tweets. This illustrated one-page feed reader may also be an effective strategy for converting a reluctant social networker.
I do wish the updates were more real-time. It is unclear how ofter the articles are updated. And I wish I could make an unlimited number of newspapers. (I am not certain, but it looks like I am limited to five.)
