I wish to follow people organized by groups. Tried TweetDeck, but it only pulls current 5-10 posts. I want histor y.Are there other options?

@sherpie As when blogging went mainstream, the visible uses of Twitter are trivial. The deeper experience, over time, IS learning, growing.
@sherpie Twitter’s strength isn’t publishing (what you see), but the curating that comes with conscious decisions in following and RTs.
@sherpie Twitter, better than other social media, provides a space for exchange of knowledge, curation of content, trivial AND significant.
Phone, mobile, SMS, voice-mail, e-mail … integrated. http://bit.ly/2KNF7
