Do you like the idea of writing something on the web and not able to track it later. On twitter, clicking more became so troublesome that i had to think about backing up my tweets. There are many ways you can archive tweets, use some online services from http://sparrw.com/, http://twistory.net/ & http://tweetbackup.com/. But again that data is not online. So the best way i found out it is:to have a wordpress blog just for saving your tweets and keeping it online. Even twitter goes away -your tweets are online till eternity.
- install a fresh wordpress blog on your domain with P2 theme.
- activate P2 theme
- install Twitter Tools from http://alexking.org/projects/wordpress
- configure the settings for Twitter Tools Options with your twitter username and password
- do other configurations for daily digest and weekly digest.
Now i realized another problem with having my tweets online till eternity. What if all URL shortening services go off. bit.ly, t.co etc. So i am getting my own url shortening service running on my other domain zump.in, which also let me chose the URL. In case of Bit.ly i can chose the complete URL, as there is something random that always gets in. ht.ly/3BFzx points back to this blog article, similarly zump.in/TweetOnline also points back to this blog article only but it makes more sense if i read it, and the best part is that i owned the domain zump.in and i run the URL shortening service.
