Update on the rss twitter experiment.
Since it has been a week today, I thought I would write an update post on my rss twitter replacement experiment. In short: I want to give it up! I haven’t even looked at the tweets most days, (because I have to look at them tweet-by-tweet, and then find each thing I want to read.) Not only that, I usually only see the things on top, so I’ve missed a lot. In google reader, I don’t just look at the things on top of feeds, I look at everything in that feed. Also, reader does a better job of filtering than twitter does. I subscribe to only the feeds I want to read, and I read only the posts I want to read, (using list view.) Oh yeah, when I find links I want to read, I’ve been sending them to instapaper, (because often times I don’t find them all in one session,) guess where probably about 95% of those links still are? yep, instapaper! So yeah, I’m ready to give it up!
