Twitter Is Not RSS

Gabe from MacDrifter:

But Twitter is a flowing river. I am not on Twitter all day so I miss the clever banter and people complaining about Twitter. RSS is time-shifted. RSS is targeted and bounded by my subscriptions.

This is exactly how I feel. Twitter is great for breaking news, or even just “news” in general. But it’s too easy to miss good, thoughtful writing if you just count on RSS for it.
