Twitter as a newspaper?

Virtual crossover as any Twitter feed becomes a newspaper.  You can find my main Twitter feed here, thus displayed.

This is a further example of how putting up paywalls can only harm traditional publishing - as the thirst for reading content generated in a crowdsourced and unpaid context only grows.

As curator of a Twitter feed which can now generate a newspaper, I wonder how this will affect who we follow and why.  It was always a conditional relationship - nothing wrong in that.  Now it may become a tool for substituting the high-priced content the media moguls claim we need.
