How to create a Twitter archive of your tweets – Use WkhtmlToPDF and TweetsToRSS to save your tweets as PDF

com.vsubhash.bash.twitter-to-pdf.txt” is a Unix/Linux shell script for archiving all messages posted by a Twitter account in PDF format.

The command to use is:

bash com.vsubhash.bash.twitter-to-pdf.txt \
  realDonaldTrump \
  4000 \
  nojs

The first argument to bash is the shell script. The second argument is the Twitter account. The third argument is the number of tweets to archive. The fourth argument is used if the Javascript used by TweetsToRSS causes problems with WKhtmlToPDF.

This code assumes that WKhtmlToPDF is available in /opt. Else, you need to update the script. WKhtmlToPDF uses konqueror browser under the hood. The good thing about it is that all HTML links are preserved.
