    1. Hi Phil! Thanks very much for dropping by and for sharing that link! Very helpful tip, indeed! Although didn’t enjoy much getting this message:

      “Oh noes elsua!, you’ve got 36459 tweets and I can only get the first 3200 tweets”

      Plus also the fact that backs up the whole round the tweets, versus just the ones under a specific hash tag, which is what I would favour the most when curating the tweets of a specific event. Makes much more sense, imo, don’t you think?

  1. Luis,

    quite interesting, and i think it summarizes the way i always wanted to use twitter from live events. my first attempt was to use it as a blogging platforms (micro-blog, n’est pas?) but the lack of tools to revisit those posts made it almost impossible to use – ended up spending countless hours formatting word and excel documents to aggregate the content.

    my (now) next generation, or rather the current one after diff tries, is to add value to the stream with commentary and links — but again, lack of historical features makes it hard to future-blog it. will try to see how it can get it to work with these tools and methods.

    thanks for writing this up!

  2. To address the problem of lost Tweet history, I use a tool (Twitter Tools in WordPress–there are others out there) that creates a blog post at the end of the day with all my tweets for the day.

    This way, I can always search my blog for a past tweet. Not sure but it probably doesn’t hurt my SEO either.

    This doesn’t solve the problem of other people’s tweets at a conference unless you re-tweet them. I guess that’s a personal call.

    Thanks for the ideas.

  3. Luis –

    This is terrific! For those of us who don’t travel quite as much as you do, it’s a fabulous way to learn from the best meetings.

    I’m looking forward to your next meeting reports!

    – Mary
