There are robust sites that are like small PR magazines about the service. SiftLinks does not have one of those, or even a logo. Instead what it has is a very simple concept and a single button to press if you want to use the service.

You get the tweet and then the link to follow. It’s a very clean and non-invasive way to keep up with links shared on Twitter. I use it in addition to the email services that select the top links shared. It’s one of those services that you can use when you have time and ignore when you don’t.
