Paper.li is a site that allows Twitter to aggregate their linked stories and display in a newspaper format. Paper.li bills itself “A great way to stay on top of all that is shared by the people you follow – even if you are not connected 24/7”
For example, you can read all the stories journalist Matthew Ingram has tweeted about aggregated in The Matthew Ingram Daily. The program captured the headline, dek and first few sentences of each story, which are displayed in a newspaper-style format and sometimes even including photos from the source publication.
Via Twitter, J-Source asked Ingram and another Paper.li user David Johnson what the motivation for participating is. Johnson replied “It’s a handy tool. Pulls together websites based on the tweets and compiles info nicely. quick way to check things out.” Ingram dittoed the sentiment.
