The New York Times Labs have created a wonderful layer for your Twitter feed. Sometimes I want to use Twitter less as a place for commentary and conversation and more as a way to identify links and news worth reading.
Vellum allows you to do just that. It is a reading layer for your Twitter feed that shows the links that have been shared and who has shared them. So tweets go from a mix of conversation and comments to looking like this:
The links are still clickable and you can view the tweets themselves that were posted if you like. If you are looking for a way to scan your Twitter feed faster for articles, this looks like a great choice.
