Hi publishers, here’s what’s new this week at Paper.li!

New Twitter widget:

Last year Twitter announced that they would be retiring their original API this spring and rolling out a new version (1.1) in order to foster a more consistent Twitter experience across the Twitter eco-system. 

We completed the switchover with no impact on the service, however we were required to retire the older version of the Twitter conversation widget we were displaying on papers.

What does this mean?

Only good news. We made a few changes on our side and now you have the option of creating a Twitter widget and adding it to your paper (or not).

The widgets can be created via your own Twitter account and you determine the content you would like to display. If you prefer not to have a widget on your paper at all, that’s an option too.

To get started, simply go to the Add-ons tab under in your paper settings and look for the Twitter widget option.

Like what you see, Email me!

Recently we’ve seen an increase in readers and visitors to papers contacting us in order to get in touch with publishers. Not very effective, to say the least. So we have created a new widget, “Email me” that will help readers and publishers connect more easily.

Once activated an “Email me” icon will appear next to your profile and your readers can contact you. Of course, we’ll send the email on your reader’s behalf, keeping your email address concealed until you share it with them yourself.

Sneak-peek: White-label solution

The one feature that PRO publishers have unanimously said they would pay a whole lot more for is the ability to have control over the footer, header and other aspects of branding.

Well, good news! Our Paper.li white label solution will be available in May and you won’t have to pay a cent more for it. It will be included in the PRO package at $9 per month (or $99 per year). We’ll let you know as soon as it is ready!

Have a great week and be sure to tweet us @smallrivers if we can help you with anything.
