Probably, especially if you are a follower of social media such as Twitter, you are familiar or seeing the catch phase “Save To Notion” in several tweet threads that are relevant or interesting or to be more precisely, @SaveToNotion will be the right way to present it, but what is Save To Notion and how it works?
Its definition is relatively simple because its creator, @Abdulhade_Ahmad, has created the Notion integration with the most exact name he could ever think of. This integration saves the content that you are referring to Notion. See? So clear: Save To Notion 🙂
But let’s see how it works. We first need to know that Save To Notion is a bot available for several networks or social media, such as Twitter or Telegram. Even Reddit will be available quite soon, as you can see on its official web page:
How does Save To Notion work?
It is pretty simple, but some of the steps will depend on the network you use. In this case, to illustrate the process, I will use the Twitter network, and the first thing we need to do is follow the @SaveToNotion Twitter account from the account you would like to Save the content.
After doing that, you need to duplicate the Tweets Database based on the link the owner has made available to you on the following link: https://t.co/378ST1tjbj.
To duplicate that, you need to open the link that will show the Tweet Database on your browser and click on the Duplicate Button.
This will open your Notion Workspace, and it will place at the root folder of your Notion Pages structure a copy of the Tweet Database, as you can see in the picture below:
Now, we need to connect our Twitter Account with this Notion Database, and to do so, you need to open a Direct Message (DM) to the @SaveToNotion account with the content: /connect, as you can see in the picture below:
After doing so, we will receive (after a while) a confirmation link from Save To Notion account that we need to open to confirm the connection between the Twitter account and the Notion Database we previously duplicated:
And as soon as we do that, we will see an authorization form from Notion itself that will ask us which database will be connected to this integration. We will need to select the Tweets one we previously duplicated to ensure this is the page where Save To Notion will save all its tweets from now on, as you can see in the picture below:
After doing so, we will receive a new DM from the Save To Notion Twitter account confirming that everything is now good, as you can see in the picture below:
So, finally, we are ready to start saving our memorable or relevant tweets or Twitter threads in our notion database by just replying to them with a mention to the Save To Notion account (@SaveToNotion) and adding the hashtag depending on the kind of tweet we are going to save: #tweet in case we are willing to keep a single tweet or #thread if we would like to keep a whole thread. We’re showing an example in the picture below:
And that would automatically generate a new page in our Notion Database with all the content of the thread you would like to save, as you can see in the picture below:
Suppose you want to summarize everything we have covered in this view. In that case, I’m also giving you a quick short video created by the founder of the Save To Notion integration so you don’t forget anything you can do with this excellent integration:
