Speaking of ways to use Twitter as a replacement for RSS, my friend and fellow Macworld contributor Marco Tabini has released Plume, a rather clever, don’t-call-it-a-Twitter-client iPhone app that turns your Twitter timeline and lists into a newsreader or “read it later” app. Plume crawls links shared by all the people you follow, and you can even add “Feathers” to collect links from users you don’t follow. It’s a great way to stay on top of the news you have a much better chance of caring about, instead of constantly wading through a sea of headlines that mean nothing to you.
I helped beta test Plume, and it’s great. It’s just $2.99 in the App Store.
