This Week’s “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”

| 1 Comment

I have a huge backlog of resources that I’ve been planning to post about in this blog but, just because of time constraints, have not gotten around to doing. Instead of letting that backlog grow bigger, I regularly grab a few and list them here with a minimal description. It forces me to look through these older links, and help me organize them for my own use. I hope others will find them helpful, too. These are resources that I didn’t include in my “Best Tweets” feature because I had planned to post about them, or because I didn’t even get around to sending a tweet sharing them.

Here are This Week’s “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”:

Storify has created a simple bookmarklet that lets you embed tweets. It doesn’t quite fit in The Best Third-Party Twitter Apps That Don’t Require Your Password, but I’m adding it to that list anyway, since I don’t have any better place to put it. Thanks to Kevin Mclaughlin for the tip.
