If You’re Suffering Information Overload from Twitter, Try Publishing Your Own Newspaper

December 21, 2010

Here’s a handy tool for Facebook and Twitter users, particularly those that like to follow links  to more detailed articles – http://paper.li.

Paper.li organizes links shared on Twitter and Facebook into an easy to read newspaper-style format. It provides a headline and a blockline from the related link, allowing you to get the general gist of a story before following the link to read it in full.

Creating your own Daily is a simple process of giving paper.li access to your Twitter and/or Facebook accounts. Once you’ve set up the account, it publishes daily and saves an enormous amount of time.

The downside is it doesn’t capture every Tweet over the 24 hour period. If you’re hung up on wanting to see everything you feeds provide, this may not be the solution for you.

The layout is ideally suited to media hacks who have spent their career trawling through newspapers and who are now coming to grips with new technology.
