Paper.li: Twitter in Newspaper Form

Twitter is a source of news for many users, so why not view it as a newspaper? That’s the thinking behind Paper.li, a new Web app from Swiss startup SmallRivers that allows users to view Twitter streams, tags, and lists as a daily online newspaper, TechCrunch reported.
Small Rivers also got some large cash, with TechCrunch reporting that German investment and media group Econa, French early-stage investment firm Kima Ventures, and a group of unnamed Web 2.0 angel investors combined on a new funding round.
The alpha launch of Paper.li occurred in April, and the beta launch will follow soon, according to TechCrunch.
