Move over Mr Murdoch, now everyone can produce a daily newspaper based on a topic of their choice.
The millions of twitter topics are easily collated around a central theme using the paper.li platform. In the newspaper creation above a populist topic of “Organic Food” was used.
paper.li organizes links shared on Twitter into an easy to read newspaper-style format. Newspapers can be created for any Twitter user, list or hashtag.
The archive functionality is a welcome addition and a platform such as this could be used as an adjunct to a twitter-based marketing campaign.
