It’s time to get completely off RSS and switch to Twitter.
The Google Reader team posted a blog entry today with some results of a survey it conducted.
Marshall Kirkpatrick takes on the “RSS is dead” meme , started by Steve Gillmor, but really started by all those people who haven’t been using RSS much anymore. My answer to Marshall: I’m not in the news business anymore, but if I were I’d keep Twitter up on screen. I’ve been looking closely at Google Reader’s latest features, Twitter, Facebook, and FriendFeed and I gotta say that most of what shows up on TechMeme shows up in my Twitter feed up to a day earlier.
Sam Diaz at ZDNet tonight wrote the latest admission that he’s not using his RSS reader anymore . I have a lot of respect for Sam’s writing, but I am having a hard time believing that he and so many others say they no longer even bother to read feeds. Twitter, Facebook and aggregators like Techmeme or Google News suffice for Sam, he says. He’s far from alone.

All blogs on the WordPress.com platform and any WordPress.org blogs that opt-in (using this plug-in ) will now make instant updates available to any RSS readers subscribed to a new feature called RSSCloud . There is currently only one RSS aggregator that supports RSSCloud, Dave Winer's brand-new reader River2 . That will probably change very soon.
