A friend of mine introduced me to Tweetnest a week or so ago. Tweetnest allows you to save all of your data/links from twitter onto your own website/database.
For the past few years I’ve been sending out links to tutorials, architecture, designs, videos, etc. One of the great features of Tweetnest is the ability to search. As of right now it only loads the last 3,200 tweets due to Twitter’s API limitations. But if you were to start now it would collect all of the important tweets your sending out, you will have to reload the “loadtweets.php” file in order for it to load in all the recent information (see below on how to setup cronjob). For me, my most important tweets are the tutorials. I sometimes forget about them and then am never to visit the page again. This is a great solution to being able to search within the information you’ve already shared and/or for others to search on your site for the information their looking for.
Below I’ve created links to tutorial search results of the links I’ve sent out. I have a cronjob set to go out every night at midnight to pull in all of my recent tweets so it’s constantly updated.
Tutorial: After Effects
Tutorial: Cinema 4D
Those are a few examples of tutorial categories that will help you focus in on each different platform/software that you’re learning. Let me know of any great examples of how you personally use Tweetnest to organize your data.
How to set up cron jobs:
Once setting up tweetnest on my site I realized the headache of having to load the “loadtweets.php” page daily to make sure it was up-to-date so I did some searching and found this great post “Keeping your Tweets with Tweet Nest” and it describes how to set up the cron job under the “Fire And Forget” section.
