Twitter broke IFTTT, do you still want to archive your tweets to Evernote ?

Twitter broke IFTTT, do you still want to archive your tweets to Evernote ?

Recently Twitter changed its policy meaning the triggers in place in IFTTT will no longer works on September 27th. It’s a pain but one cannot really blame Twitter to try to regain control over their ecosystem (but that’s another matter).

Here’s a cool workaround to archive your tweets to Evernote. I discovered it through a tweet from Jamie Todd Rubin (aka @jamietr).

You can follow the easy 6 step method by reading his blog post.

Or you can use this IFTTT recipe https://ifttt.com/recipes/58229 and modify it with the Twitter account you need.

For more information on all the great stuff you can automate with IFTTT, see episode TEC #004 – IFTTT and Evernote.

I have implemented his method and it works great, thanks Jamie. This method which uses RSS should work until March 2013, that’s still better than nothing (thanks @cybermarmotte for the info).

Until the next time, happy evernoting !

Pierre.


Update 25/09/12

Another solution to archive your tweets to Evernote: twtr2src twtr2src.ogaoga.org

Thanks Joseph aka @tamegoeswild for the info.


Update 16/10/12

Just received an e-mail from IFTTT saying the recipe I used with the RSS method is no longer working.

So we’ll have to find something else to archive tweets.

Thanks Joseph aka @tamegoeswild for the info.


Update 02/12/12

 Another option is Twieve (twieve.net) discovered on this tweet from Mark Kawasaki.

Update 28/08/13

It’s now possible again to use Twitter within IFTTT as a trigger (for example, archive all your tweets or just the one with a specific hashtag, etc.). Woohoo!

TEC #027 – Create an @Evernote notebook on the iPhone

TEC #027 – Create an @Evernote notebook on the iPhone

Hello,

In this video I show you how to create an Evernote notebook right from the iPhone app (version 4.4).

This feature is not so well know because it is not so obvious where to find it (I think I stumbled on it by chance the first time I used it !).

Here’s the step by step way to do it.

Step 1: tap on the “i” icon when you are in a note

Step 2: tap on Notebook

Step 3: in the search field type the name of the notebook you want to create

You’re done. With the next synchronization, the new notebook will be created in your account.

Until the next time, happy evernoting !

Pierre.
