Creating Your Newspaper with Paper.li

If you do not have time to review your Twitter feeds, you may consider looking at them through a daily newspaper that compiles a snapshot of Tweets and sends it to your e-mail. The newspaper is more visual because it expands the stories and adds images based on the content of the Tweet. I recommend a service called paper.li from http://paper.li/. In addition to creating your own, Paper.li has a list of newspapers that others have created to include individuals you are following, Paper.li staff selections, and trending papers. This is another great source to find people to follow.

To make any additions or modifications to your papers, you must log in with your Twitter account.

Following a Paper.li Newsletter

1. Log onto http://paper.li/

2. Select a newspaper you wish to follow by clicking on the title of the paper.

3. Click on the Subscribe button in the right hand column.

4. Enter your e-mail address and CAPTCHA word in spaces provided and click on the confirm button.

Creating a Paper.li Newsletter

1. Log onto http://paper.li/

2. Click on the Start a Paper link in the toolbar at the top of the page.

3. Enter a title for your newspaper.

4. Add up to 5 different streams of content to your Paper.li. These streams can from search queries, lists, Twitter users, RSS feeds, Facebook feeds, etc.

5. Filter based on language if so desired.

6. Decide upon the topics you would like to see in your paper.

7. When done, click on the Published button at the bottom of the page.

Note: you will have to subscribe to your own paper, if you want it sent to your email address.
