News Discovery Tools: Slices for Twitter Organizes and Auto-Curates Your News Stream Into Categories

News Discovery Tools: Slices for Twitter Organizes and Auto-Curates Your News Stream Into Categories | Strategy and Social Media | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Slices is a news discovery app that allows you to find the news that interest you by "slicing" the Twitter timeline into topic-specific categories, making it much easier to find what you are looking for.

 

From Pandodaily official review: "Slices offers 21 searchable categories – humor, technology, sports, and so on – that lead you to people and lists to follow. Included among those top-level categories is the “Live Events” option, which allows you to select an event – a football match, say, or a TV show – and follow Tweets from a curated list.

Also of note: "...it synchronizes between mobile devices and the Slices website (slices.me), which means it knows which Tweets you’ve already read, no matter where you access it from.

 

...The “Timeline Slicer” also outdoes Twitter’s Lists as a way to organize the people you follow into specific categories. They’re easier to set up and easier to access, ..."

Slices is available on iOS, Android and the Web.

5 Rules for Content Curation on Twitter

5 Rules for Content Curation on Twitter | Strategy and Social Media | Scoop.it

Twitter is still my research tool of choice, because of its deep mining of real time content.  It is the true precursor of the content curation tools that are becoming indispensible to those of us who have to deal with 'noise' on a regular basis, and find some way of making sense of it.

In 2012, the work of Morozov, Curran & Fenton and Dean resonates more than the old, enthusiastic, trusted Shirky and Jenkins.
