WTF is paper.li good for?

Is there any reason for http://paper.li to exist?
Over the past couple weeks, I've been mentions of my handle in tweets such as: "The [fake name of news source] is out! [link to a branded paper.li site] Top stories by [@me]" So I click the link, and see a selection of current news stories. But I never find anything I've written.
So what's the point, other than making me click on a link? Seems like an annoying waste of bot-generated bits polluting my stream.
Does anyone here use it, and have anything good to say about it?
I found some further discussion and comments at http://blog.braintraffic.com/2010/09/is-paper-li-good-news-or-bad-news-for-content/
