The stuff in your Twitter stream is fleeting, but there’s a lot being shared out there that’s worth remembering. Depending on how many people and brands you follow, you’re likely to see a lot of updates in your stream that you may not want to forget, but just don’t have the capacity to efficiently capture. Let’s go over some of the things you may want to grab from your Twitter stream and save to Evernote — and some of the apps that help you do this in a very seamless way.
9 things to capture from your Twitter stream
Here are just a few ideas for the kinds of tweets you might want to send to your Evernote account:
- Deals and offers: stores and websites will often tweet discount and promo codes — keep them organized in Evernote
- Restaurant and other service recommendations: don’t ever have that “what was that restaurant I heard about?” moment again
- Links to articles: a lot of people use Twitter to share content — don’t lose links to articles you might want to read later
- Job notifications: if you’re on the job market and follow recruiters and HR professionals, capture tweets about new job openings and opportunities you might want to pursue
- Tech reviews: follow technology sites and influencers and save tweets about reviews for products you might want to buy
- Customer service interactions: take note of customer service interactions you have to follow up on later
- Crowd-sourced feedback: if you have a robust following, use Twitter to gather crowd-sourced feedback and save it all to Evernote
- Events: don’t miss out on events shared via Twitter — save tweets with links to event websites to Evernote; tag them with ‘events’
- DIY tips: use Twitter to help you learn something, and keep it for reference in Evernote
