Create Screenshots Of Twitter Tweets And post Them To Blog, Tumblr Or Any Other Web PageTechnology Sunday, May 11th, 2008
If you want to show a Twitter message by someone on your tumblr page, blog or website, use tweetshots. The service allows you to create screenshots of Twitter tweets that can be embedded in any web page. They also have integration with Tumblr to let you post screenshots directly to your Tumblr page.
If you go to tweetshots home page, the first impression that you will have is ‘how do I actually take a screenshot’ as there is no help information available on the page and the interface is non-intuitive. I don’t know why people make so confusing to find out how their service works.
So here’s how to take screenshots of Twitter tweets using tweetshots. Go to the home page and enter your bookmarklet name in the defined box. You don’t have to do anything with “What am I doing?” box and pressing the “tweetshots” button didn’t work at my end.
After entering the name, drag the bookmarklet link to your browser’s bookmark toolbar.
Now open any page containing a single twitter update like this and click on the bookmarklet. On the nest screen, click the “Grab the tweetshot” link to create the screenshot.
On the next screen, you will see the screenshot along with the embed code and link to post the screenshot to Tumblr.
Go ahead and create your Twitter screenshots.
