TweetNotebook – a personalized notebook of your tweets

TweetNotebook logo

TweetNotebook places one tweet from any account you specify at the bottom of each page for a mere $12 and gives you a living book from it.  The confusion is how best to use it, not if it is cool or not.  The downfall is that tweets are not chronological in any way but totally randomized. How they selected the ~300 of my over 7k tweets is beyond me.

“TweetNotebook” is a personalized printed notebook of 320 almost blank pages, for you to fill with thoughts, reports, tools, to do’s,droodles , …. On the bottom of every page you’ll find a tweet, its timestamp and the url to retrieve this tweet online. So on every page, you’ll find a little piece of your twitter-history. Sometimes fun, sometimes serious

Now that sounds like a lot of pages to fill out with information about your tweets.  After testing it I read more on the FAQ to learn I couldn’t remove tweets either, making it hard to tell a story or get rid of miscellaneous items.  You can modify the title and have it in your hands in a few weeks via PayPal payment.

A neat idea, but lacks a bit of work to make this useful for business accounts.  Then it hit me.  This would be awesome for someone trying to build a reasonable timeline of tweets from a trip with associated pictures.  However, the lack of chronology made that a bit impossible also.

The last problem I encountered while testing the application, was I could not scroll through the book due to the way they pop up the sample.  I was on the Macbook/Firefox and could not scroll down and have it hold there to flip pages.  It kept popping the page back to the top.  So I was unable to see the inside of the book, only the cover.
