How to archive my tweets?

[UPDATE]

So, it looks like IFTTT deleted my recipe, to avoid drawing Twitters wrath on themselves. I will mail the customer support and ask, what happened…

tldr: IFTTT recipe: Archive my tweets to dropbox!

Even though I am a happy Twitter user, it makes me feel very uncomfortable that I cannot easily access all my old tweets. For that reason I used IFTTT and Dropbox for the last several months to archive all the new tweets, so that I have access to those at least. But after Twitter forbid IFTTT to directly access the tweets, this solution was no longer working. But as clever users found out, Twitter is still providing a RSS feed containing all publicly sent tweets  for each user.

As a result it was very easy to get the whole pipe line working again. If you want to try it youself just use my public IFTTT recipe: Archive my tweets to dropbox! You only have to replace my Twitter handle with yours…

Btw: Please share if you have other useful recipes!

Hi,

I have started writing tweets in the last weeks. I mainly post links to interesting pages, but with a slightly broader focus than the blog. Yesterday I posted for instance this comic http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/2009-12-09/

There are three ways to read my tweets:

Also feel free to look through the people I follow at twitter, maybe you find something interesting.
