Many educators are sharing their Twitter content daily (twice-daily, or weekly) using paper.li, an interactive newspaper. SmallRivers is the Swiss-based company that created paper.li.
Anyone can easily create (and delete) a paper, which could make for a transient experience. However, there are some Tweeters you can count on being there. And papers created from solid educational hashtags like #edchat and #edtechchat will always be around.
Paper.li content can come from a variety of sources:
The possibilities and purposes are endless.
Could paper.li be used in the classroom? Of course! Think a student newspaper, a compilation of student writing/multi-media projects, for starters ...
Here are some education-related dailies already on paper.li that I recommend:

I recommend that you subscribe to paper.li newspapers, for most efficient use of your time. Receive a daily email containing the updated issue, and peruse the paper at your convenience. So convenient!
YES, I did create two papers myself:
The #GTANY Daily, which looks like a hashtag-created newspaper, but is really a newspaper created from Danny Silva's public list of Google Teacher Academy New York attendees. I must keep up with the doings of my cohort!
And I just created The Teacher-Librarians Daily, from my public Twitter list of 435+ teacher-librarians that I continue to grow. "Checking the Twitter pulse of school librarians, daily" is of utmost importance to me.
Paper.li is one of my favorite ways of harnessing Twitter. I highly recommend it!
