You Can Now Download Your Twitter Archive!


The folks at Twitter have just announced that they will be making it possible for users to download their personal Twitter archives. This is exciting news and I know many librarians (myself included) who will be eager to download and preserve their tweets. Here’s more from their blog announcement:

“Today, we’re introducing the ability to download your Twitter archive, so you’ll get all your Tweets (including Retweets) going back to the beginning. Once you have your Twitter archive, you can view your Tweets by month, or search your archive to find Tweets with certain words, phrases, hashtags or @usernames. You can even engage with your old Tweets just as you would with current ones.”
