1.2 - Alan - Archiving and searching Tweets

Release date: 05.06.2019

In honour of: Alan Mathison Turing

Every release we honour a person, activist, scientists, artist, politician who significantly contributed to humanity's progress

Alan Turing was an English mathematician, computer scientist, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher and theoretical biologist. Turing was highly influential in the development of theoretical computer science, providing a formalisation of the concepts of algorithm and computation with the Turing machine, which can be considered a model of a general-purpose computer. Turing is widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence. Despite these accomplishments, he was never fully recognised in his home country during his lifetime, due to his homosexuality, which was then a crime in the UK.

May he help us make sense of the cryptic Twitter world. 🙏🏻

Features in this release

We attempt to release features early but iterate on feedback quickly. It may still have some minor UX bugs. Please let us know :)

1) Save & Archive Tweets Deprecated

From now on you can save, archive (so you have it even if it's down) and search tweets, and add notes to them.

How?

  • Just click on the little "brain" icon to save Tweets to your Memex.
    • Beware: Only clicking the brain icon will archive the tweet. If you use the ribbons functionalities it will save the Tweet url just like a regular page, but does not archive the tweet.
  • You can tag, star and sort tweets into collections too by hovering over the brain
  • You can add notes to tweets

Big thank you to our amazing team and contributors
