How to you keep a record of interesting tweets you send?When I come across great articles I share them out ontwitter but I don’t always store them myself.This presentation shows a few different options for savingmy tweets.
1. Finding Tweets sent worth saving using allmytweets.netTwitter only stores the last 3,200 tweets you send anddoesn’t provide this in a easy to view format.Allmytweets.net allows you to enter your twitter ID andthen display the last 3,200 tweets.
According to the list below it retrieved 3,243 tweetswhich is slightly over the limit allowed by twitter.This gives you an easier way to navigate through yourtweets to find relevant ones you want to save.
2. Bookmark your tweets with DiigoDiigo is a neat bookmarking tool that allows you to storelinks to relevant content.The free version allows you to do unlimited bookmarking.In Diigo there is an option to link your account to twitter.
