Iâ€™ve read quite a bit lately about all the changes to Twitter. The incessant complaining, the non-stop blood-clot cryinâ€™, the â€œTwitter has gone too farâ€ rhetoric, and so on. Whatever Twitter has done has irritated a lot of people, but doesnâ€™t seem to have hurt them much, if at all. I donâ€™t really care one way or the other. I use the native Twitter client on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Samsung Tab 7.0 Plus; seems to work just fine. Â No problems noted. I use the Silver Bird add on for Google Chrome to handle my Tweeting when Iâ€™m online, and I use Buffer when Iâ€™m inside Google Reader. Havenâ€™t seen any problems there either.
Iâ€™ve been using a service called IFTTT – awesome tool by the way – to send all my Tweets directly to an Evernote Notebook where theyâ€™re archived for all eternity, or until something happens to the cloud. So each time I compose a new Tweet itâ€™s automatically captured and appended to my â€œIFTTT Twitterâ€ Notebook in Evernote. Itâ€™s great.
Unfortunately it looks like thatâ€™s all about to come to an end. I received the following email yesterday:
Itâ€™s a real bummer. It wonâ€™t stop me from using Twitter, but itâ€™s still a bit frustrating that something so incredibly effective at automating the archiving of my Tweets is being shut down.
