My problem with reddit is (a) I always have to click through the reddit
entry to see the article it's about; this is a usability botch as far as I'm
concerned (b) I already have to follow too many sources of information, and
would really like to get it under control.

As for twitter, one word:  firehose.  *Way* too easy to miss things, even
with Tweetdeck and the like.
