Finally, Twitter Will Let You Download All Your Tweets

first_imgFacebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Tags:#social media#twitter Related Posts How Does It Work?Turns out that for now it’s available only to select users. And only in English. The function is being rolled out slowly. Twitter says the service will be available to all users in every language the service provides in the coming weeks and months.Want to see if you’re one of the lucky guinea pigs who are able to access the archive right away? Here’s what to do: Log in to Twitter, go to Settings, scroll down to the bottom to see if you have the option to “Request your archive.” If you see the button, you’re eligible (unfortunately I was not eligible). Once you click the button, “You’ll receive an email with instructions on how to access your archive when it’s ready for you to download,” Vandor promises in the blog post. For heavy Twitter users with thousands of tweets, the archive feature should be a useful tool to preserve and remember what they’ve said, experienced and shared. And you can imagine how much it will help biographers and historians. But really, this feature affects how everyone uses Twitter – making a instantaneous, immediate medium just a little more lasting and permanent. And if your archive unearths some tweet-worthy old tweets… tweet ’em. Twitter asks that you “share your favorites using #TwitterArchive.” Check it out.  Image courtesy of Shutterstock.

On Wednesday, after months of anticipation, Twitter officially introduced an archive function that will allow its 150 million active users to download every one of their tweets. That’s right, now you can do what the Library of Congress has been trying to do for the past few years: Collect and save all of your tweets!“You’ll get all your Tweets (including Retweets) going back to the beginning,” Twitter user services engineer Mollie Vandor wrote on the Twitter blog Wednesday. “Once you have your Twitter archive, you can view your tweets by month, or search your archive to find tweets with certain words, phrases, hashtags or @usernames. You can even engage with your old tweets just as you would with current ones.”This upgrade has been a long time coming, and a lot of people have been clamoring for Twitter to make this available. Now it is. The only thing is, most people will have to wait to get admitted into the tweet-archive party.last_img read more

The Hustler’s Playbook – Hustlers Sweat the Small Stuff

first_imgHustlers focus on big outcomes. That focus is what allows the hustler to produce bigger outcomes than non-hustlers. To produce those big outcomes, the hustler must ignore smaller, less important outcomes. If something isn’t critical to producing a big outcome, the hustler ignores it or hires someone else to manage it.This idea is important. Your life is the sum total of the outcomes you produce, especially the results you produce in your most important relationships.The non-hustler focuses on small outcomes. They allow trivial things to distract them from larger outcomes. And this is a distinction worth noting (and changing). The hustler hires someone to do administrative work for her so she can focus on creating the value that only she can create. The non-hustler does the administrative work themselves, giving it far more weight than it deserves.I hear you thinking, “Wait, Iannarino. You hooked me here by saying hustlers do sweat the small stuff. What gives?”Hustlers focus on big outcomes, and they know all the details necessary to producing that outcome.I know one hustler who knows the metrics of his business at a level that is difficult to imagine. He can name his top 20 accounts, their revenue, their profit margin, the percentage of his business the account generates in sales and profit, and all the main people on his team who serve the client. He knows all the main contact’s names, their children’s names, and dozens of other details. He cares about every little detail.Another hustler I know keeps dozens of projects going at the same time. She knows the status on every project, the next action that must be taken, who is responsible for taking that action, and when it is due. Like the hustler in the paragraph above, she is mired in the details on the big things that matter. If it’s important to producing the outcome, she knows the details.Non-hustlers focus on things that are urgent. Non-hustlers focus on activities that, even if successfully completed, do nothing to produce a great outcome. The non-hustler thinks that they need to sweat the small stuff without recognizing that knowing and dealing with the details only matter if the outcome truly matters.Are you steeped in the details of your most important projects, your life’s work?Are you focused on the largest, most interesting, and legacy-building projects? Or are you spending your time on small outcomes that won’t move the needle? Essential Reading!

Khar cops surprise senior citizen with a birthday cake

first_imgIn a heart-warming gesture, cops from the Khar police station ensured that a senior citizen in their area was not alone on her birthday. On Saturday, four constables surprised Kumud Joshi, a retired professor, with a cake to ring in her 77th birthday.“I was pleasantly surprised to find the police officials with a birthday cake at my doorstep,” Ms. Joshi told The Hindu. “At this age, we don’t really get many visitors or people to talk to. People like us require a support system as it increases the confidence in living,” she said.The Mumbai Police’s official Twitter handle tweeted about the surprise to Ms. Joshi which led to a flood of birthday wishes for her on the social media, with many people praising the cops for their thoughtfulness. On Sunday, Ms. Joshi was presented with a collage of birthday wishes that came for her on Twitter.The surprise was planned by SI Khalil Shaikh who often visits Ms. Joshi and is constantly in touch with her. “We exchange greetings every morning on the phone. When I realised that it was her birthday, I decided to plan a surprise for her,” said Mr. Shaikh adding that the Khar police had been lending an ear to lonely seniors citizens for a long time. “At times, they want someone to have a conversation with them, so we do share our personal numbers. When we visit them, they feel really ecstatic as if a family member has come to visit them,” he said.When it comes to crime, senior citizens have always been vulnerable targets. Thus, being in touch with the local police is often helpful for them. “The cops have even gone to the extent of fetching medicines for me. During elections, they helped me get to the polling station and even dropped me back home after I cast my vote,” said Ms. Joshi.With increasing number of senior citizens living alone, many of them treat the policemen as their family members. “We always have varied experiences with the citizens. While some feel guarded and secured, many are apprehensive to our visits as they do not like their neighbours wondering why the police are paying a visit. We need to make these visits to ensure that the people living around them or working in their houses are aware that we are in constant contact with them. It helps us in preventing crimes,” Mr. Shaikh said.last_img read more
