I tweet, therefore I am

How can I create a blog like page with links I tweet? More details inside

I tweet 4-5 times a day with a decent following. Unlike the general sentiment on twitter of 'now' the kind of stuff I blog is a bit more timeless and may be of interest for a longer period. Is there a way I can link my twitter to a service which shows a bit of the text of the links I tweet (like facebook post preview) so I have a kind of a blog.

If there was a way I could download my twitter timeline and backfill this blog that would be bloody marvellous. Isnt it?

You could use If This Then That to post your tweets to Tumblr, though I don't know if that's "bloggy" enough for you..

pinboard can do something like this, as can Packrati.us for Delicious and a bunch of other sites. If you need something more custom if this then that would be a good start.

As for back filling the blog, I've no idea

I came in to suggest pinboard, which is a good company run by a very responsive guy (mefi's own Maciej Ceglowski. Their display aesthetic is very minimalist but they're great about giving you the tools to do whatever you need to with your data -- you pay a small fee for the service, and they work only for you, not for advertisers or data miners, so they have an incentive to help you achieve your goals.

TweetedLinks does exactly this.
