TOC:

Around a year ago, I began retweeting all the most valuable information I found on twitter. Then, I would periodically scroll back and manually paste the links into the channels of a discord server, organized by category.

The problem with that, is if you are scrolling through your history, it has to load, and it’s easy to miss that particualr tweet where I know I left off.

Eventually, I gave up. More recently, my workflow has become much more direct. When I see a valuable resource (typically via mobile on a smoke break), I click the share button and send it directly to it’s appropriate channel.

I’ve found this to be quite an efficient solution, however… There’s the matter of what about all those links I re-tweeted with intention to categorize, but never got around to.

What do?

Export Tweets to CSV

So, this is the hard part. Finding a free app that will get as many tweets as you need.

For now, I know vicinitas.io allows you to download up to 3200 tweets to csv, which was enough for me.

In the future, this page will fill with everything related to exporting and publishing content from twitter.

From there, I threw the CSV in Libre Office Calc (an ok free version of Excell). I was able to filter the 3200 tweets to include only those related to identity.

I am going to share more about how, exactly, I make the content from csv. In the meantime:
