My paper is The Catholic e-News Daily and it contains articles from one of my Twitter lists. All I had to do was name the paper, designate the Twitter list, check what types of content I wanted to publish, how often (daily, twice daily, or weekly) and at what time of day. The tool does the rest. Once it is set up—it runs automatically. I can edit my choices anytime and the new version will appear with the next publication. At publishing time, it sends a notice to my Twitter followers and an email to my subscribers.
The aggregator scans all of the tweets on my specified Twitter list each day, finds links to new content and puts them together on one website. The opening lines of these articles are published in the newspaper along with the original author and the name of the Tweeter. Hyperlinks are provided.
I follow a lot of people on Twitter and I don’t have time to read all of the tweets everyday—but there are some people that I don’t want to miss. This newspaper brings them to me (and to my subscribers) in one place—complete with a lead-in and accompanying graphics. You can check it out (and subscribe) by clicking on The Catholic e-News Daily. It comes out daily at 10:00 a.m. Eastern time.
There are all kinds of aggregators—some are totally automatic, others allow more customization and editing. What aggregators do you use? Why do you like them?
