Facebook is building a Twitter like news app

Facebook building a new mobile app like Twitter that will send breaking news alerts to your smartphone. The stand-alone app will ask users to choose which publications they want to receive notifications from as well as specific topics on which they want to receive news. 

Publishers will be able to send out 100 character of text along with a URL to users. The links on the feed will take users to the publications website. The app will be interesting as it would allow users to get relevant news without having to go through a mountain of news feed, profile updates, etc, that are on the social networking site. According to reports the app is reportedly testing in alpha mode. Facebook has declined to comment on the rumors.
