Twitter is a great place to read content you may not be able to find anywhere else. Often, we want to save Twitter threads we find particularly noteworthy to Evernote. But how?
You could do it by manually copy-pasting the thread’s content or setting up a complex, high-maintenance Zapier/IFTTT integration.
But the quickest and easiest free way to do it is via Tressel. Here’s how!

Sign up for Tressel (it’s free)

Go to register for a free Tressel account - all you need is an email address and a password (or using your Twitter, Facebook or Google account will do).
No credit card needed!

Save a thread (in 1 of 2 ways)

There are two ways to save a thread to Tressel/Evernote depending on your preferences and your subscription

Save via public comments (free)

1. Reply "@tresselapp save thread" to the thread you want to save.
Any tweet in the thread is fine, but the most reliable way is to reply to the first tweet in the thread especially if the thread has multiple chains (or the last tweet in the thread if it's older than 7 days old)

2. Wait 2 minutes and you should receive a confirmation message that the thread has been saved (and you can verify this in your Tressel dashboard)

Save via private DMs (premium)

Note - this is a premium feature - you must be subscribed to Tressel's premium plan to save privately via DMs
1. On the first tweet of the thread to save (or the last tweet of the thread if it’s >7 days old), click the Share menu and click "Send via Direct Message"

Tressel will automatically sync your tweets to Evernote

Wait 5 minutes (at most) and you should automatically have a separate notebook in your Evernote workspace called "Tressel" with all your saved tweets and threads

Optional - if you want to resync ALL your tweets/threads to Evernote all over again (from scratch), press the "Clear Sync Memory" button in Evernote's settings page
