Create PDF, DOC, XML and other docs from Twitter tweets! | Educational Technology in the Library | Scoop.it

Description by EdSurge

 

"Proudly made in Latvia, twDocs allows you to export any collection of tweets -- favorites, direct messages, search results, and mentions -- into a PDF, DOC, XML, or HTML file. The tool essentially puts structure in place to curate Twitter as an ever-growing informal research database (if you find tweets to be unreliable resources, check this out). Use twDocs to bring social media into the evidence-gathering process, or even better, export the next #edchat for some lunchtime professional development."
