The Latest provides an automatic list of the 10 best links from Twitter right now so you won’t have to figure out who to follow for quality content.
Twitter is awesome for finding the latest news and links. The problem is that Twitter is HUGE, so if you want to find these links you must follow tons of people and flood your feed. The Latest makes it easy for you. When you enter the site you get a real-time updated list of the 10 most popular links right now, so you don’t have to search for the good stuff anymore. It’s a simple service, delivered on a simple and minimalistic interface.
The Latest is the 5th project of Oskar Sundberg (@Gori) and Per Stenius (@Fimpen). (check out WorldCam to see an example of their prior work…). The site shows great understanding about the pros and cons of today’s social media; you can get some amazing content but searching for it can be time consuming to the point of making it not worthwhile. If you are still faithful to good old Twitter, you can just follow the Latest Twitter feed, and get the links, but if you decide to give the site itself a chance, make sure to check the notifications feature for a real time updater of the latest news and links that Twitter has to offer.
