Your Twitter stream is fleeting and often hard to search. That’s why Evernote is a great resource for storing the important bits of that social conversation – memorable quotes, articles, restaurant recommendations – and making them available and easily searchable.
A few years ago, we saw this need to capture your Twitter stream, so we launched a rudimentary Twitter integration called @myEN. Since then, services have come along that connect Evernote to your social stream in amazingly useful ways. We will be turning off @myEN next week. If you’ve been using it, we recommend switching to IFTTT or Zapier, which are much more robust replacements. Here’s a look at what makes these tools great.
Capture Social Memories with Evernote Apps and Services
If This, Then That (IFTTT) connects two services of your choice, to create an automated flow called a recipe. This is a great way to automatically add content from various social networks and services to your Evernote Account.
Need inspiration for what you can save into Evernote from Twitter, using IFTTT? Here are some of our favorite recipes:
- When you favorite a tweet, it will be sent to Evernote
- Send an archive of all your tweets to Evernote

Zapier is a service that allows you to automate your workflow by connecting Evernote with social networks and web services. What’s a Zap, you ask? Similar to a recipe in IFTTT, a Zap is a connection between two apps that automates time-consuming tasks. Here are some Zaps you can use for Twitter:
- Track tweets in Evernote
- Save Twitter mentions to Evernote
- Archive every tweet for easy access and reference when its needed most
