How to Share the Tweets You Favorite

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

Make the most of the tweets you favorite by making them easier to browse and share.

One of the most overlooked features of Twitter is Twitter favorites. You can favorite any post in Twitter that you like or you want to reference at a later date.

Adding Value to Twitter Favorites Through Filtering

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Favoriting tweets is one of the most under-used features of Twitter but one of the most valuable. I use Twitter favorites for bookmarking content. If there’s a link I like or some content I want to read, I favorite it so I can reference it later. Unfortunately, the more you use favorites as bookmarks the harder it is to use.

The downside to Twitter favorites is that you can only look through them in the order that you saved them, one page at a time. This makes all that great content you favorited very difficult to reference. To fix this, I’ve added some new filtering features on ReStream.me.

Filtering Twitter Favorites

Yesterday, I added two new filters to Twitter favorites: filter by tag and filter by author. Once you import your favorites, you can select any of your top 15 tags or top 10 authors to find related favorites. You can also view any page of favorites so jumping to any favorite is much easier.

To get started, log into ReStream.me using Twitter. Import your favorites (step 3 in the sign up process) and go to your recommendations page. Once there, click on “favorite tweets” in the navigation to go to your Twitter favorites. Happy filtering!
