50 Essential iOS Apps: NuzzelTwitter is a great way to stay up-to-date with the news. A well-curated Twitter feed can provide important updates on topics important to you. Sometimes, knowing what is most important can be a challenge as conversations, memes, and social commentary overwhelm actual news updates. With Nuzzel, you can view a summary of the news stories everyone is talking about. Best of all, it’s personalized to you.

What is Nuzzel?

Nuzzel is a Twitter-adjacent aggregation service, designed to show you the most talked about links from your feed. By linking your Twitter account to the service, it will provide a feed of news stories important to you, making it fast and easy to stay on top of breaking stories or the hottest think-pieces.

Why it’s great

Twitter can be a mixed bag of news, commentary, and junk. With Nuzzel, you can keep up with the important news of the day (or week) without being bogged down. Nuzzel, as a service, is the perfect way to stay informed on what’s important to you (and the people you follow) so you aren’t missing important news. The personalized news stream makes it the best news app for what matters most to you.

Another great feature of the app is the ability to view the news Nuzzel users from your Twitter account are seeing. This can help broaden your news exposure to different news sources, or see news on different topics you may not be as engaged with. The “Friends of Friends” list aggregates the most talked about of those broader feeds, giving you a large, well-rounded collection of news to read.

Nuzzel menu, feed, and newsletter setup

Nuzzel also features a Newsletter feature, allowing you to curate the best news and into a daily or weekly summary. This can be useful for keeping track of important news, or sharing critical news with subscribers. With Newsletters, you can also auto-post your top stories from the day (or week) to Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn, allowing you to share important news with your friends and followers.

Who it’s for

Nuzzel is for anyone that uses Twitter for news. It’s also great for social “influencers,” marketers, and journalists, allowing you to save time while keeping up to date.

Bottom line: Nuzzel is the best news app

Nuzzel is a great supplement to Twitter for keeping up with the news. It’s easy to use, and provides useful insights on what’s important to your social circle. The personalization of the feed is based on the people and news sources that matter most to you make it the best news app.
