This would be pretty advanced digital literacy, I would say, but it focuses on some pretty basic skills: using tools to scan content and extract informatun related to your particular interest or need. In this case, Wesley Fryer wants to useTwitter as the data source, aggregating content on universal basic income (UBI) using IFTTT and saving it into Pocket. He would then send the Pocket to a Twitter feed and display it using Flipboard. Not everything went as planned and he bogged down writing a Python application. I probably wouldn't use Flipboard, but if I had to, I'd import the feed to Flipboard using the RSS from Pocket modified by IFFTT to feed into Flipboard's RSS reader. Or just use a specialized application.
