Favoriting is a ubiquitous Twitter feature that lets you flag a tweet as being something worth saving. But it’s just one raw chronological stream. That makes it almost impossible to find and share those awesome pieces of content that you saved a week ago – a month ago – a year ago.
What we need is a way to organize our favorites, the same way we organize our bookmarks when we save an interesting link. Delicious.com has been doing this forever with regular links, but it’s a social media world now – that’s where we find cool content, and that’s where we need to save it!
How to organize your Twitter favorites and retweets:
Not only does Keepstream let you organize and share your Twitter favorites, you can also organize retweets. And if you want a more fully-featured way to create bundles of tweets, we also have a Create interface for the professional curator (video: Keepstream Tutorial on Vimeo).
Bottom Line? Favorite or retweet the best tweets. Then later, stop by Keepstream to organize them.
Consider the big picture – there are many other ways to flag content as important, such as voting something up on Quora or Reddit, digging something on Digg, liking something on Facebook, and more. That activity is curation happening all around us, but usually it’s hidden from our view. This is what we are working on at Keepstream – making the social web a more organized place, and helping us find the content that is truly important and personalized.
