academiPad's insight:

This is a massive list of twitter tools to simplify your social media management - provided you find the time to actually cut trough the djungle of tools listed here. Luckily, the lists is structured into informative categories with headings such as Browser Plugins, Desktop and Web Clients, Filtering, Follow and Unfollow, Mobile, Retweet, Scheduled Tweets, Search, and much more.

In short: Exhaustive list, but more for reference purposes. Not much information is provided.

Top 5 Google Reader Alternatives that work with Buffer - The Buffer Blog

As of July 1, 2013 Google will discontinue Google Reader and shut down the site. And this is good news!

Although at first I was at grief about the death of Google Reader I soon realized what lots of others have noted by now. The fact that Google Reader is dead is awesome. It will allow for lots of innovation in the space to happen that couldn’t before as Google Reader wasn’t changing.

 

Now new RSS sync services are coming up, and many of them are supporting Buffer (http://buff.ly/M2hZAU)

academiPad's insight:

This post lists five alternatives that will keep the lights on once Google Reader has left the building. And best: They all work with Buffer, my facourite twitter and social media management app. Buffer (http://buff.ly/M2hZAU) lets you schedule your posts so that you can share your finds sparsed out throughout the day. 

 

Its free to sign up, and when you do, please use this link (http://buff.ly/M2hZAU) so that I can get one more spot in my upcoming tweets queue. Thanks!
