My problem with Twitter, which I am guessing is shared, is that the information blasts past like leaves floating on a raging river, making it difficult to pull and save the wothwhile bits. Sure you can “star” tweets and then go back later to manually collect. But I saw this on Lifehacker this morning and think it is a fabulous tip: send and save the valuable Twitter tweets using Tweetdeck and Evernote.
Tweetdeck is great for sifting through the torrent to find the gold in the first instance. Tweetdeck also allows you to email tweets via your own email client. Evernote permits notating via email – provided you are using Evernote’s universal capture system. You can then stream to RSS, your phone client or your desktop RSS reader. Automatic for the people!
Thanks Steve Ruble (East Coast Blogging) and Lifehacker for the nice suggestion.
