Twittering Singapore News

My mate Ben Koe has created SGNews, a single Twitter stream of Singapore news from a collection of the best RSS-able Singapore news sites including Topix Singapore which I edit. From The EOK .Network:
1. I collected a bunch of RSS feeds from ChannelNews Asia, The Business Times, TODAY, Yahoo News Singapore, Tomorrow.sg, and Topix Singapore News.

2. To clean up duplicates (because sometimes Yahoo syndicates from CNA), I filter them through Yahoo Pipes to get rid of the repeats and form a single consolidated RSS feed.

3. I put this Piped feed into TwitterFeed which automatically and periodically updates http://twitter.com/sgnews with a nice clean stream of the most current news.

4. Users can Follow http://twitter.com/sgnews and get the most up-to-date news on Singapore from multiple sources.
