      Hi Rita,

      Thanks for your feedback. I visited today's paper.li for Writingmatrix

      and clicked on your content, and found that it had been published via your

      This is what we found out in the MultiMOOC session, that Twitter is a
      reliable aggregator to Paper.li whereas Scoop it is reliably NOT one of t
      Paper.li's aggregators. When you tweet from Scoop.it the link in your tweet
      is to your Scoop, not to the original article. These will not appear at
      Paper.li. However the tweet you made directly on Twitter giving your link
      to your original article was aggregated.

      I'm not sure why your Ning post wasn't picked up but a closer examination
      will probably reveal the underlying rule. Why not try tweeting that you
      made a post in your Ning and give the URL to the Ning post and let's see if
      we can get it in Paper.li that way (then we'll know more about what we
      should tell students to do to participate in Writingmatrix).

      I tweeted my blog post
      tagged the post itself writingmatrix. Both appear to have been picked
      up, the tagged blog post in the main page, and the tweet in "Heard on
      Twitter" sidebar. Tom Leverett's post also appears to have been picked up
      because it was tagged writingmatrix.

      This would be great news if we could find what blogs are being polled by
      Paper.li (e.g. Blogger, Posterous until Apr.30, and Wordpress I believe)
      and for those blogs it might be enough it students just tag their posts.

      More research is necessary (let's do it :-)
