Using twitter as habitully as I do and having given up on RSS I tend to use twitter favourites to store links to interesting sites, resources and articles I always mean to go back to.
I rarely do but thanks to the marvellous laterstars I’ve got a handy way of managing twitter favourites and reviewing the links i’ve been stockpiling for consumption at some later date.
Am guessing that some of these links might be of some use to some others so herein starts a weekly summary of the last weeks tweets that caught my eye. Let’s see if I can get it to last more than a week …
