UPDATE: In May 2011 Paper.li added new functionality to the platform. Get all the details in my post and video tutorial called Paper.li Lets You Control Your Twitter News Daily
Do you have what it takes to become a Power Twitter User overnight? First let’s look at what makes a Power Twitter User. You might be thinking the number of tweets, the number of users, you’re following or a custom Twitter background might do the trick, but no my friends, that’s not the answer.
It only takes a few minutes and a cool tool to put your illustrious tweets to work on your journey toward Twitter stardom. You can have your tweets adorned in stlye – magazine style that is! Check out the slick layout introduced to me by DragonBlogger on his “Bloggers daily as shared by 44 people on DragonBlogger’s Twitter list”
Paper.li Gives You Live Tweet Streams and Media
Paper.li makes it easy to see more than 140 characters of the tweets from your favorite Power Twitter User’s Twitter list in newspaper style format. You can display your own list or a #hashtag. Scroll a little further down the page and find two of my favorite sections of the “Daily”; the scrolling LIVE TWEET STREAM and the MEDIA area houses the video content.
Since you can create a Paper.li display for any user, Twitter list or #hashtag it’s time for you to become the next Power Twitter User on the block. Watch how quickly you can create a “Daily Paper.li” of your own in this screencast from Demogirl
Paper.li will update every 24 hours and you can schedule it to tweet an announcement when a new one is ready. A few drawbacks to Paper.li is that it isn’t an exact science and you can’t change the update schedule. If you don’t think your Paper.li is shining the spotlight on enough Power Twitter User-ness, you can click Alert me on the Paper.li I created for my BloggerLuv or Trailblazers Twitter lists.
The other drawback to Paper.li that you can’t change the 24 hour update interval. The Daily I created from my BloggerLuv Twitter list was started in the evening but I wish it would update at around 6:30 or 7 am. The beauty of this is I can remove the announcement feature and send the tweet manually or schedule it with HootSuite using either the Ow.ly or Ht.ly link shortener tool (or another Twitter client).
Create a Paper.li and share your link with us in the comments.
You go! You Power-Twitter-User you!
