Twitter As An Online Newspaper

Posted By Debbie on October 25, 2010

In an age where newspapers seem to be going extinct, or at least going online/mobile, Paper.LI wants you to create a “newspaper” based on Twitter. You can pull from your followers, a hash tag, or a Twitter list. Paper.LI grabs what seems to be recent and relevant, and puts it in a traditional newspaper layout.

As an example, here is “The #UI Daily” based on tweets with the #ui hash tag. With Twitter about short messages in tiny bites, this starts to look like a lot to try to digest… in a no-attention-span, don’t-make-me-read world.

Are you more likely to read tweets, opinions, or info in this format? Is this better or easier than following your fave hash tags or tweeters?
