We are happy to announce that we have just released a new version of TwitterTim.es,  personalized real-time news service. Please note, we have changed the name to The Tweeted Times http://tweetedtimes.com

The Tweeted Times generates a newspaper from your twitter account, collecting all news posted by your friends and representing them in an easy-to-read newspaper format. The key feature of The Tweeted Times: sophisticated filtering and ranking algorithms to deal with information overload. Our algorithms identify the most significant news in the user’s Twitter stream so that you will never miss anything important checking the newspaper only once or twice a day. The Tweeted Times collect tweets from your second circle of friends as well and provides serendipitous experience: news posted by friends of your friends are still relevant to you, yet we rank them with a lower weight. The Tweeted Times newspapers are being updated hourly.

New in this version:

  1. Newspapers created from Twitter lists. Twitter lists produce topical streams, but they are not used by many Twitter users because these streams are still too noisy. The Tweeted Times makes Twitter lists really useful. It selects the most important news posted to the list, turning it into an interesting topical newspaper. For better ranking in list-based newspapers, we consider tweets from members of the list as well as list’s subscribers.The Tweeted Times is integrated with TList so that users can easily find lists on any topic of interest.
    Every user is allowed to create up to 10 twitter-list newspapers. For example, check out newspapers based on @Scobleizer/most-influential-in-tech and @MoneyMatters/personal-finance
  2. Newspapers created from any search query on Twitter. It is often useful to see everything discussed about a trending topic at a glance. The Tweeted Times retrieves the most tweeted links in the search result. The user can create newspaper based on a search query (for example, a trending topic on Twitter, or any topic of your personal interest).For example: http://tweetedtimes.com/#/search/iPad%202
    http://tweetedtimes.com/#/search/Mac%20AppStore
  3. Ability to find and bookmark newspapers of other users. You can explore and search existing newspapers using convenient browsing interface. For example, you can find newspapers of interesting people like Tim O’Reilly @timeoreilly or Esther Dyson @edyson.

The new version is now live on the Web: http://tweetedtimes.com. Enjoy!
