    Have you tried Delicious ? Given what you said it looks like it works the same way as Pinboard and has no fee.

    I had the same problem when Google Reader changes its ways. The best piece I read on the topic was Bob Warfield’s: http://smoothspan.wordpress.com/2011/11/01/google-reader-another-brick-in-googles-garden-wall/

    On a practical level, I had a problem like you did because my @jonerpnewsfeed on Twitter was populated by shared items from Google Reader. I had some trial and error with new solutions like you did, but after talking with @dbmoore who also curates enterprise news, I decided to try Delicious as the “send to” option and it’s been working very well, so now Delicious populates my jonerpnewsfeed Twitter account. I still use dlvr.it to customize the tweets and deliver them to the newsfeed twitter account – that part hasn’t changed. Delicious does not charge for this, so it’s all still free, curated news.

    good luck with your feed…I guess I’m glad we still have Reader but Google really hacked it good.

    Just add a new “Send To Twitter” option (the original broke with New Twitter change).

    Name: Send to New Twitter
    URL: http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=${title}&url=${url}
    Icon URL: http://si0.twimg.com/images/dev/cms/intents/bird/bird_blue/bird_16_blue.png

    Now you basically have the same that you use to with Share.
