Does interfacing with Reader provide processing improvements over pulling the feeds directly? If you're analyzing (and enriching?) feeds, I'm guessing you're running something like Calais and Solr as part of your processing stack.

twitterfeed seems promising, although I haven't tried it yet. It even lets you manage the format of the tweets and supports post filters. There are also a few plugins for Wordpress such as WP to Witter and WordTwit. For Wordpress.com you can use Publicize which is included by default.

I don't know of any reader that has such capacities. Sometimes blogs themselves offer a feed specific to one category. I personally use Feed Rinse for some feeds to filter out posts that I don't want. There you can block (or allow) items based on title, tag, author or content. Maybe that could help you as well.
