Vellum

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.

    That’s pretty cool, Tasha. Thanks for the head’s up! I’d like it to be smarter, of course (to put links from people on a list at the top, say, or to let me exclude youtube or goodreads links or whatever), but it’s still quite addictive.

    Jen, that’s so true. It would be great if you could customize things. That way I could see your links towards the top!
