archive

I’ve tried archival services for Twitter in the past, and they can be terribly handy when you need to find a link you shared in the past or some old conversation you had months back. Journalists, especially, are likely to end up finding the services very useful. But now that I’ve been using App.net a lot more, I’ve started searching for apps that would help me search through my ADN account.

I ended up stumbling upon a web service called Watermark.io, provided by Riverfold Software (the same developer behind the fantastic Tweet Library archive service).

And many of us want more than just the raw data; we want a way to format, analyze, and automatically archive our Twitter lives.

These 12 web apps, tools, and services will help you on your way to a backed up, readable, and easily-studied Twitter existence. (more…)

You’re a busy person. I’m a busy person. There’s no way that we could possibly get through all of the amazing things that we find on the web every day, as we’re constantly bombarded by new links and amazing new Google search results.

Luckily, there are are couple of ways to save these links for later. One of the newest methods is Spool, an app that intelligently saves pages to your account and synchronize them across the web and other devices. I’ve been in the beta for this service for a while now, and my full rundown is below.
