In the past year I’ve become a pretty big Evernote user, and have even gone as far as to purchase a premium account. Last week the Evernote team expanded their service even more with Evernote Trunk, which is a centralized area to find third-party hardware and software that works with Evernote. When I saw that I realized that I have never written about the Twitter integration that has already been around for awhile.




Why is this useful? Well, if you’re on-the-go you can quickly send yourself a reminder to your Evernote account with a simple text message. After you follow the steps below you can send a text message in the format of “d myEN [your note]” to 40404 (that’s the U.S. number). The note will then appear directly in your Evernote account inside of your default notebook.

What does it take to link your two accounts? It’s actually pretty simple…

If you have a public (non-protected) Twitter account, then do the following:

  1. Follow myEN on Twitter (you will need a Twitter account)
  2. myEN will follow you back, and send you a DM with a link (this took about 24-hours for me)
  3. Click the link, sign into Evernote, and connect your Evernote and Twitter accounts

If you have a protected Twitter account, then do the following:

  1. Follow myEN on Twitter (you will need a Twitter account)
  2. Accept myEN’s follow request
  3. Send a DM to myEN
  4. myEN will send you a DM with a link
  5. Click the link, sign into Evernote, and connect your Evernote and Twitter accounts.

Once you have your Evernote and Twitter accounts linked you can move on to the testing phase. To test this out you either need to include @myEN in a tweet, or send @myEN a direct message.

If you used the direct message method you should find that the message appears in your Evernote account almost immediately.
