In this video, I’m taking a look at a little known fact within a little known fact about the free media consumption app for the iPad, Flipboard:
1) You can add each of your Twitter Lists to Flipboard as a separate Sections and…
2) You can add people to your Twitter Lists that you don’t actually follow on Twitter
This means that you can group together dozens of Twitter feeds in a single list that would otherwise bog down your Twitter stream and add the list to Flipboard and read them all in Flipboard’s magazine-style format. It also means that, since most website post links to their latest articles on Twitter, you can read any such website in Flipboard as if it had its own Section simply by giving it its own list in Twitter. This can also come in handy for people who post a lot of content to Twitter, but so much so that it floods your feed and makes it overwhelming—don’t follow them, add them to a list and make them a Section of Flipboard.No Flash?

I don’t think I’ll be reading my main Twitter stream on Flipboard as much as I’ll be using it to consume these other sources of content—the ones I don’t actually follow.
How do you use Flipboard? Found any cool tricks? Leave a comment and let me know!!
