One of the features that the micro blogging platform Twitter has been dabbling for a while is its ability to archive a user’s tweets. Last year in the month of July, 2012 Twitter’s CEO Dick Costolo told a group of reporters and editors at The New York Times that the service would soon allow users to download ‘a file’ of all of their tweets.
In the month of December, The Next Web had reported that Twitter is testing the ability to download tweets but with a very small percentage of users. The latest news is that Twitter has expanded its “Twitter Archive” feature and has made it available to 12 more languages which includes Hindi as one of the languages. Earlier when Twitter had confirmed that it is working on a certain section of users then it was only with the English language. With the latest update from Twitter, it has now expanded this service to an additional 12 languages – Hindi, Farsi, French, Hebrew, German, Spanish, Dutch, Malaysian, Norwegian, Finnish, Hungarian and Polish.
To obtain an archive file of your Twitter account, follow the below listed steps:
1. Log into your Twitter account and go to Settings.
2. By default the page loads your Account screen, so just scroll towards the end.
3. You would find an option “Your Twitter Archive” with a button “Request Your Archive”. Click on the button and a link will be emailed when the archive is ready. The process might take a while and you would receive an email with a link to download your archive.
Go ahead, get your archive and do share what was your first tweet.
