From The Clever Tip Box: Save Twitter Info Using Tweetdeck and Evernote

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.

Instead, check out this list of hot topics on ExecTweets as of the time of publishing this post:

I notice a glaring absence of posts on MJ. How refreshing!

More “Twitter” for Business: Obayoo

Another entrant in the professional micro-blogging field is offering its service for free: Obayoo is free over SaaS and available through the company e-mail address.

Twitter, in theory, sounds great for professional application but in practice generates too much noise to be an effective internal communications tool.  Tools like Obayoo limit the traffic and, accordingly, the noise, while still affording users the ability to provide real-time updates and engage in quick and timely comunication in micro-blog format. Obayoo also offers security that Twitter cannot ensure. Nonetheless, like Yammer, one of Obayoo’s competitors, contractors and clients can be invited into the mix and “share” what is happening at any given moment, so the system is not completely “closed.”

Obayoo provides some additional goods, such as user profiles and organization charts,file and media sharing and metrics. At its price-point (free), Obayoo offers excellent ease and added features, making it well worth the try in your firm or organization.

Hat tip to Read Write Web.
