Often times I come across a great resource on the web and I want to bookmark it. I usually use Delicious.com to save and manage all my bookmarks. However, sometimes when I’m browsing the web via mobile, I can’t really save the links to my Delicious account, especially when I’m using a specific app, so normally I will do one of the following:
- Send the link to myself via email, so that I can bookmark it later when I check my mail on my notebook.
- Send to Readability app, if it’s something I want to read later.
- Tweet the link (if it is something that will benefit my twitter followers) so that I can favorite it and it will be thus bookmarked on my Favorites list. Yes, I use Twitter’s Favorites list as my bookmark page That’s why I suggested to @twitter to do something about it.
Luckily there is a solution from Delicious’ side that they have introduced few months back. Basically what it does is that, it connects to your Twitter account via oAuth, and pulls all the tweets with hashtags #d. You can also select few other options, such as pulling all favorited tweets etc.
To set this up, login to your Delicious account and go to Settings > Sources – Connect a Twitter Account.
After you have selected the preferences, press “Connect Twitter“.
Once you are shown the above page, press “Authorize App” and you are done. Now Delicious will diligently collect all your links from tweets that have a hashtag of #d and/or all your favorites tweets.
