New for Twitter Users-Paper.li

Good news for you if you are a Twitter user and would like to keep a digest of your Tweets!
Enter – Paper.li, a new website that will create a newspaper type digest of all your tweets and display them in your own pages, plus it adds all the tweets  from your friends that you follow. All for FREE!

The “Paper” is divided into sections with each section showing tweets from relevant topics.

You can easily add your Twitter account to feed into the paper and it works like this;

Twitter User Account-

“The newspaper will be created using all the links (articles) shared in the past 24 hours by the selected Twitter account (curator) AND the people being followed by that user (contributors)”
or you could use a #tag;

Twitter #tag

“The newspaper will be created using all the links (articles) shared in the past 24 hours by all Twitter users that have associated the selected #tag”
and you can also choose to use lists like this;

Twitter @list

“The newspaper will be created using all the links (articles) shared in the past 24 hours by all Twitter users on the selected list”

You can create more focused papers with the Custom Paper button.

“You can query Twitter with a more complex search term than just a #tag (e.g. find all the tweets that talk about climate AND carbon but NOT solar = climate carbon -solar).You can also restrict the Twitter users that can contribute content to the paper by specifying a Twitter list.”

I think that this website will take-off in a big way when more people get to hear about it, especially the users of Twitter, not only that though, the company behind Paper.li – ‘SmallRivers’ is also working on a way to link Facebook into the paper and use your Facebook postings to do the same thing!

We will see what happens, in the meantime if you are a Twitter user and would like to have another link to your blog or website, you could take about 5 minutes and set this up and then tell everyone about it.
