Since my return to teaching, Twitter has been reduced to evening access. I’m no longer sat at a computer throughout the day, and even if I was Twitter is, of course, blocked by my LEA.
I’d say my main use of Twitter is to pick up the great ideas, resources and websites shared by friends on my PLN. And being away from Twitter during the day means that so many of these just pass me by…
From what I can see, the technology is pretty simple. Every 24 hours Feedera publish my personal daily feed based on the tweets in my PLN. It has a fairly simple scoring mechanism which appears to be a combination of friend ReTweets, general ReTweets, Facebook shares, Delicious bookmarks and of course number of clicks. Feedera then builds a “digest” of the top 50 stories / photos / videos from my PLN in a simple clean interface which is easy to scroll through.
Simple, and effective.
