If you're more of a reddit person than a Twitter person, there's Instacurate for reddit, too. http://www.instacurate.com/s/red...

What's next for Instacurate? It's been on standby for some time – I still use it, as do others – but there has been no development recently for a lack of time. That being said, there are still a couple of features I'd like to implement, so let's see...
