Now just trying to decide if I want to format my site with multi-site (WordPress 3.0), custom post-type, or an external fresh install.

I’d really like to use the custom post-type option, but I don’t think there is an importer for CPT’s yet, nor would you be able to import new tweets with Twitter Tools to CPT’s (would be awesome though, hey Alex, feature request?).

Now I’m starting to think about possibilities for innovating the design of it.

For instance, you could do something like this: http://human3rror.com/demos/ipseity/ that puts your tweets in large bold type and has a slider to quickly go through the posts.

Or, since a lot of tweets have links, you could use something like the Facebook function to pull an image from the linked page and part of the text. There’s actually a lot of interesting ways this could be set up.

I actually follow you (@perishable) on Twitter which is how I got tipped off to Douglas Bowman’s tutorial and how I got inspired to make my own tweet archive.

Looking forward to see what you can do with it.

I am working on implementing new features and taking it beyond Bowman’s excellent tutorial. You can see it in its current state here.

Just have to get the older tweets imported so it’s not so dependent on Twitter anymore.
