Your Tweet Archive's Here (Well, Almost)

By December 21, 2012

Follow me on:

If you've sent a gazillion tweets over the years, you've probably been waiting for Twitter to offer access to all your old 140-character gems, especially since the messaging service currently limits display through its unwieldly Timeline interface to your most recent 3,200 tweets.

Now Twitter is finally doing just that--giving users access to all their old messages. In a blog post this week, the service said it's started to roll out a personal tweet archive function that lets people download a big zipped file of all their old tweets.

It may take a while since Twitter is phasing in the feature gradually to users, but eventually we should all have access to a special link for downloading all my tweets and creating our own, personal (though offline) tweet archive. Learn more.
