Turn Your Twitter Stream into an Ebook for Kindle with Toronto's E-Read MyTweets

Posted by Techvibes NewsDesk

Amazon's Kindle ebooks are fanastic for eye-friendly reading with their e-ink displays. But in an era of short attention spans, who really has time to read a whole book? Reading is much more enjoyable when chopped into 140-character chapters.

Semi-joking aside, turning your Twitter stream into an ebook for your Kindle is a novel idea. And a Toronto-based web project has done just that.

E-Read MyTweets, currently in private beta, is a simple way to read tweets on a Kindle. With a simple login using Twitter credentials, users can view their stream via wifi or "Whispernet" (3G).

A free account offers up to 100 tweets delivered once per day, while a premium account - which costs $20 per year - offers unlimited tweets delivered as often as the user chooses. Curious folks can currently download a free sample of the service without having to register.
