No need to use twitter and facebook etc for news use RSS.

Newsboat is a free, open source RSS/Atom feed reader for Linux terminals. It is originally created from Newsbeuter, a text based RSS/Atom feed reader, however, Newsbeuter is not actively maintained.

RSS/Atom are a number of widely-used XML formats to communicate, publish and syndicate articles, for instance news or blog articles. Newsboat is created to be used on text terminals such as GNU/Linux, FreeBSD or macOS.

RSS (Rich Site Summary; originally RDF Site Summary; often called Really Simple Syndication) is a type of web feed which allows users to access updates to online content in a standardized, computer-readable format. These feeds can, for example, allow a user to keep track of many different websites in a single news aggregator.
