Twitter is a great tool to collect and share information. But retrieving it is a bit tricky. From time to time I go over my tweets archive and grab useful pieces into my notebook and mindmaps, categorizing the information.
But why can’t I share it back? – came a thought one day. So here it is, my little pilot project.
This is not just a page of quotes. Select any text to bring up sharing box, edit the text, and post to your feed.
As in the example below.
Note. This is a new feature. Any feedback or problem reports are welcome :)
