Twitter Solution - Datan0de_Tweets

I've been looking for a solution that'll allow me to archive my tweets (http://twitter.com/datan0de) here, but at the same time not fill up the friends list of anyone who either already follows me on Twitter or otherwise doesn't want to see my out-of-context Twitter outbursts.

The solution I've settled upon is to create a second LJ account just for tweets. It's datan0de_tweets. Feel free to follow or not. I'm not sure that the Twitter/LJ connection actually captures all Twitter activity, but since I know that Twitter doesn't permanently archive it's at least better than nothing. So datan0de_tweets should ideally have one post per day, with the first 10 tweets visible and the rest behind a cut.

Kudos to emanix for the elegant solution!

I'm still not abandoning this LJ! I just had so much life happening lately that I've had no time to properly document it! Not really a bad problem to have. :-)

Isn't the Library of Congress archiving all public tweets now?

I've heard that they are, but can't find any place where they're accessible. This'll be a convenient backup that I can easily reference. Also, redundancy is a Good Thing!

Me neither. I just put out a call to my librarian friends. On Twitter. :)

Psst, you set up your new LJ, but it looks like you forgot to stop the tweets coming to this account too.

Also, for the idea, you're welcome. ;)

Ah! I couldn't remember who'd given me the idea! Thank you!

I fixed the "still posting tweets" problem earlier today (at the Orlando Poly meeting, in fact). I'll be verifying the fix tomorrow.
