    Kindly suggest. Is it possible to create an IFTTT (IF this then that ) receipe/algorithm , so that, I or others who are interested, in your “Curations” get a “weekly digest” ?

    Look what I discovered today. Probably one Lifetime isn’t enough. I found couple of classic #books on Gutenberg and other few interesting reads (The Immoralist and The decline of Ameircan Capitalism) .

    Don’t follow your request. I already tweet the digest link (this post) every week to my followers. Isn’t that sufficient?

    Yet to check out your fine tastings that you shared, but one of the best articles I have come across in a long time is this. It also touched a chord in a lot of people with whom I shared in my network.

    Its done. Now when I favorite your tweet, I get an automatic email of the tweet contain link to best tweets for the week. Used this site to automate the process. https://ifttt.com/
    There are other recipes which I use eg take a backup of my tweets and create an archive in google spreadsheet. So, this makes researching my twitter archive easier, later 🙂

    Hmm…IFTTT.com is my next week’s submission.

    Great. Interestingly I use IFTTT myself to pick the curated tweets and invoke a wordpress plugin that Sudar developed. Please read the section on this site titled “How FTOTW works”.
