Save Tweets for Later


Often I come across a tweet that I don’t have time to read now, but I know in a few months it will be something I need to come back to. This firebase tweet for example looks interesting but not today. A tweet from firebase saved in FlockIt

The inbuilt Twitter bookmarking has a few well documented shortcomings. I wrote a new tool called FlockIt, the great thing about FlockIt is that it works everywhere and there’s no need for a browser extension or an extra app on your phone. It’s all done within Twitter so bookmarks can be added in a second. FlockIt does this by hooking into DMs (not your DMS).

In fact once you have authenticated FlockIt has no access to your twitter account, all it can see are the DMs you send to the bot call Jay.

Here’s a video to see how it works.
