Archive for July, 2010

More RSS options added to all archive types

July 30, 2010

As of today, all archives (person, keywords, hashtags, and collections) now have an RSS feed available.

In addition, the RSS feeds are also now auto-discoverable and include all of the “search / filter” parameters that have been selected on the archive page giving you more options on using the RSS feeds for integration with other 3rd party services.

(This enhancement aligns with enhancement API-1 outlined in the post Plans for Updates to Twapper Keeper Functionality and APIs.)

Feed of archives as they are created

July 28, 2010

A new ATOM feed has been added to Twapper Keeper to allow you to track new archives as they are created.

This feed can be subscribed to from the main page and should be auto discoverable by your browser.  As we address other enhancements that touch feeds we will be making them auto discoverable on given pages as well.

(This enhancement aligns with enhancement API-3 outlined in the post Plans for Updates to Twapper Keeper Functionality and APIs.)

Opt’ing Out of Twapper Keeper Archiving

July 22, 2010

We often get requests from users about whether they can keep their tweets from being archived at Twapper Keeper.  With a goal of allowing you, the user, to have a choice, we are beginning to roll out a way to opt out of Twapper Keeper archiving.

If you are interested in not having your tweets archived, please head over to http://twapperkeeper.com/optout.php and accept the form.  If any questions, send us an email at support@twapperkeeper.com.

(This enhancement aligns with enhancement UI-3 outlined in the post Plans for Updates to Twapper Keeper Functionality and APIs.  We will add the opt’out link to the main site shortly after we have processed our initial set of user requests.)

Now you can merge your archives together into a collection!

July 16, 2010

A new feature has now went live that will allow you to merge multiple archives (up to 5) together into a single collection!

Why would you want to do this:  How about when multiple hashtags are used for a conference?  Or maybe you are doing market analysis on a company but want to aggregate multiple keywords that represent the company?  Or maybe you want to view a list of person archives in a single view?

Let us know if you see any issues.

(This enhancement aligns with enhancement UI-5 outlined in the post Plans for Updates to Twapper Keeper Functionality and APIs)

NOTE:  Will also made some minor updates to the APIs and API docs (http://twapperkeeper.com/api.php) that will allow you to query, view, and create collections.  The documentation is a little “rough” right now and will be updated when we do the planned API enhancements, so if there are any questions let us know!
