    Hi Ian, thanks to you and the team for the write up and videos. The community is going to find a lot of value in both. We really appreciate it!

    I highly encourage users to take the time to define their sources initially and then fine tune their content on a daily basis. I am hearing great things from the publishers who do in terms of good return on shares, views and business leads!

        Last one folks. If I’m setting it up with obviously relevant content then what’s your tips – should I be using rss or mainly hashtags or mixture of them all? Just want to make sure I set it up perfectly because is it true you can edit it once you’ve set it up??

        • http://www.razorsocial.com/ Ian Cleary

          The paid version allows editing. I think editing is essential whether you use hashtags or RSS. Ian

      Reading up on it Kelly a few are moaning about being bombarded with notifications – is there a simple “turn off” function in your settings and if so I will defo be signing upto it on for several of my clients in different niche markets.

        James, apologies. Somehow I missed this. I need a comments strategy I suppose!

        Pro users have the option to set the notifications to manual. This means they go out when you decide, not automatically with each edition.

        Regarding edition, both the free and paid version allow full editing. That’s a must have for any and all publishers!

        James, if you have additional questions, feel free to reach me on twitter @kdhungerford or drop me an email. at paper.li

    Hi Ian, thank you for sharing this info, I really appreciate it!

    Is it free to set up? Would the newspaper be on a URL and act as a link or just posted to twitter as a tweet? Hope that makes sense?

    • http://www.razorsocial.com/ Ian Cleary

      There is a free and a paid option and yes it’s available on a URL. Ian

      • http://www.fatrank.com James Dooley

        Free version but seems it was because of the length of the tweets it was hard to add any via @ onto the tweets
