While there are public tools like Storify that do an OK job for tweets, and I personally end up using Evernote or for most of my (private) tracking of topics, it’d be useful if there was a good tool for collecting/collating and snapshotting primary sources and making notes/comments on any particular topic (and groups of topics). Useful things would include seen-on and publish dates (a la Zotero etc). And being able to contextualize/parse interesting pieces (Evernote and Clipmarks do a pretty good job with this)
