Sifting Twitter For Information

I’ve spent the last year trying to find a way of organising and making sense of the information that comes through Twitter, Facebook and Google+

TweetDeck is useful to organise things by category, keyword or people despite being prone to crashing on the iPad, as is Paper.li (here’s my version) although the choice of content isn’t as customisable as I would like. I quite like Flipboard for the iPad as unlike most Twitter clients it reveals the content behind the link which makes browsing so much easier and efficient .

Recently David Bradley (@Sciencebase) altered me to a new solution, Twylah. What I like about this is the ability to sort tweets by category, which means that I can separate out different subjects rather than having them all muddled up in one stream. It’s also a great way to catch up on things you missed while you were doing other things.

You can find my feed by clicking on the ‘Trending Tweets” button on the top right, or by clicking here. It’s not perfect, but it’s the best so far.
