Today I discover an answer to a prayer. A few weeks ago IFTTT (If this then that) service (at ifttt.com) lost access to Twitter. The little tool was a life line for me to keep track of all my tweets which were automatically archived in an Evernote notebook. I discussed Evernote in a recent post so will not elaborate further here.

Anyway, with a new project starting it was necessary to find an alternative. Zapier is a competitor to ifttt which I have never heard of. However, it seems to be more flexible than ifttt.com with corporate options. For my purposes, the free version is sufficient.

I am writing this note as much for my benefit as yours. Why not give Zapier a try. The “zaps” you can make are nearly infinite, just use your imagination. There is no limit to number of triggers on the free plan. There is a time limit; updates will only be sent every 5 hours. If you need quicker polling than this the next tier US$15/mo.
