Paper.li: Read Twitter as a daily newspaper.

03/10/2010 at 09:36 1 comment

Since my blog and my new course (Digital Marketing & Communications), I’m using Twitter more and more. I have written about a whole bunch of Twitter applications before, but on Social Media Marketing.com I read about a new one, called paper.li.

Once you’ve signed in with your Twitter account, you can create a newspaper of 1) a Twitter user and those being followed, 2) a Twitter #tag or 3) a Twitter @list. The newspaper will only be created using the links (articles) shared in the past 24 hours, which makes it a daily update of whatever option you chose. An example of one about my blog you can see in the picture above.

The great thing about it, is that you can promote the paper you made on Twitter and also that people can get an alert when the paper is updated. The bad thing about it, is that you can’t make a paper of a Twitter user without their followers. As you can see in the picture above, the articles aren’t mine but from the followers of eLBeeComm. The only connection with eLBee Communications is the little Twitter box in the right with a link to @eLBeeComm.

So if you don’t have any followers, you can make the paper all about you ;)
