April 27, 2010 – Read Twitter Like a Newspaper (Without Killing Any Trees) is an application that can make any Twitter feed look like an online newspaper website, complete with headlines, photos, articles, and a newspaper-style layout. Designed for users who enjoy utilizing the capabilities of online newsfeeds but miss the look and style of old-school newspapers and print magazines, allows users with diverse interests to create customized daily newspapers filled with the information that matters to them most.

To create a newspaper of your own, sign in with your Twitter account and enter the name of a fellow user whose updates you enjoy reading. Immediately, will begin importing the most interesting news stories put out by your chosen user and his or her followers that day, as determined by the number of retweets and other formulations created by Once your newspaper is ready, you’ll see a familiar layout with large headlines, one paragraph of text, and a small avatar in the left hand corner below each article indicating which Twitter user initially brought the popular story to light. Hovering over the Twitter avatar creates a popup showing the user’s original tweet and includes links that allow you to reply, retweet, follow, or unfollow the user from within the site. Meanwhile, clicking on the headline of an interesting piece takes you to an outside news source, where you can read the article in full.

    This is something new….i like it

    • after the fact. When I started denfndieg myself verbally against the bully they mostly backed down. Because they hardly planned for the responses. Such as u sure got some big eyes and I started saying back So what, what can you do about it . And they are puzzled as to what just happened. Because they are expecting me to cry, but instead I’m ok with the comment and they are shocked.
