I've been a Feedly Pro user (and payer) for the last four years (yes, I sometimes pay for software!). And RSS is one of the most important tools I use to compile these newsletters. Algorithms can be useful, but the algorithm doesn't exist yet that caters to personal informational needs. Twitter also, as Bryan Alexander observes, is a flawed filter. He relies on the Digg Reader, which will also share the most-shared stories from your twitter friends, and help you share 'diggs' on the social media site. Either way, we need to ask,  "are we carelessly consuming whatever junk information is served up to us, or are we carefully ensuring we get a balanced information diet, including your five-a-day?"
