Twitter Makes Good On Promise, Begins Rollout Of Downloadable Tweets Archive

Back in September Twitter CEO Dick Costolo announced that all users would be able to download their tweets before the end of the year. He repeated that claim last month (much to the chagrin of some of his development team).

Good news: it appears that Costolo is making good on his promise as a “a very small percentage” of users are able to access a new archive feature on, and one of those lucky testers just might be you.

To find out if you’re able to download your tweets, login to and go to your Settings page. Scroll down and if your profile has this new feature you’ll see “Your Twitter archive” and a button that allows you to request the download.

Click the button and your archive is prepared in the background, with Twitter emailing you when it’s ready to be downloaded. The archive is sent as a HTML file that opens in your web browser, with a design that’s fairly similar to, as you can see from the example below.

Do you have the Archive button on your Twitter profile? Hit the comments to let us know.
