Back in December Twitter began rolling out its long-awaited Twitter archive feature, which allows users to download a complete index of every tweet they’ve ever sent from their profile (including retweets), going all the way back to the day that they joined.
It’s taken a while but the feature has now rolled out to all users, and in this article we’ll show you how to download your Twitter archive and what you need to do to view it.
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 Twitter.com, and one of those lucky testers just might be you.
Close your eyes and imagine for a second that something catastrophic happened to Twitter’s servers, and all of your tweets were lost for eternity. How would you feel? It’s not a pleasant thought, but it could happen. Obviously the company would do what it could to retrieve your tweets, but there is a very real possibility that they would be lost forever – unless you had your own backup. We’ve got the answer for you if you’re looking for a way to backup your tweets to preempt data loss (knock on wood!).
