But two options for Google Reader tasks remain in ifttt, letting you trigger a task when you star an item or when you tag an item. I've already set up a task that puts starred items into Evernote, and I don't necessarily want to share all of them on Twitter. So I've set up a new task that shares to Twitter any Google Reader item that I tag with a specific tag (mine is "share to Twitter," so novel). Since I've also set up an ifttt task that saves my shared-on-Twitter items to Evernote, those wind up in a notebook automatically. If you're not using starred items for any other purpose, you also can do this task triggered by marking a Google Reader item with a star. Ifttt works with Twitter, Facebook, Facebook pages, blog platforms, feeds and more, so you have a variety of options to choose for your sharing.
So far, it's working, with only a couple of minutes' delay. I'm also using the +1 option to share items from Reader in Google Plus, but sharing to Twitter is an important component of my social sharing strategy. Feels great to have it restored and automatic once again. What are you doing to make up for changes in Google Reader? Share your tips in the comments.
