Besides being able to add content from your own Twitter account, you can also fetch content taken from any public post on Twitter.
Use Twitter to find content relative to your paper:
Add a public Twitter list to your paper. If you know of a well curated (public) Twitter list, you can add it as a source, even if it is not your own.
Add a Twitter user. If you know of a twitter user who tweets about the topic of your paper, add their Twitter handle (@username).
Add a keyword search (or a hashtag search). i.e. #Swisscows or "Swiss cows"
Add a search for all Twitter mentions. If you want to pull in content from any tweet that mentions another @username, you can do a search for all tweets mentioning @username.
Add a Twitter user, or public Twitter list
- From your Paper Settings Dashboard, click on Content > Manage content sources > Add sources > Find content sources.
In the field provided, enter the user's twitter name in the field and click enter. (e.g. Enter @WWF) The user's Twitter feed and public Twitter lists will be then be shown in the search results.
To add the Twitter user feed, and/or list to your sources click the button.
If you would like to add many Twitter users as sources and you have a Twitter account, consider creating one Twitter list instead (in Twitter) with all the Twitter users you'd like to follow and add that one twitter list to your sources (in Paper.li).
Add a keyword, hashtag or mention search
- This process is very similar to what is described above, but instead of searching for the Twitter user (e.g. @WWF), you would enter in a keyword, hashtag or mention string into the search field.
Keyword Search Examples
Example: If you enter Fontainebleau France, then you will get all public posts with both words....
such as this one (with both words in the post).
If you enter an exact phrase within quotes, we will fetch the text within the quotes.
Example: If you enter "Fontainebleau France", then you will get posts with both words together (excluding punctuation).
If you enter an keyword with a hashtag, we will search for posts labeled with that hashtag in a similar way.
