Downloadable Tweets Now Available For Some Users



Twitter users will soon be able to download all of their tweets since the beginning of their account, with some already being able to do so.

The social platform has started distributing the ability to download tweets gradually to users. The downloaded tweets will come in the form of an archive that resembles a calendar.

People currently have access to a few thousand tweets that they have posted on Twitter but the ability to download all personal tweets is currently only available to a select group of users.


Dick Costolo, CEO of Twitter, had promised to make the ability to download tweets a reality by the end of the year.

Costolo said last month that: “By the end of the year I’ve already promised this, so the engineers – when I promised it publicly they’re already mad at me so they can keep being mad at me. Now, again, once again, I caveat this with the engineers who are actually doing the work don’t necessarily agree that they’ll be done by the end of the year.”

An Indian blogger, Navjot Singh is one of the first few users to be able to use the new feature and reveals that you can search through previous tweets month by month in the archive.

The blogger says that he found the option to download his past tweets by finding the button (shown below) in the settings page of his account.



Twitter has said that it is now testing the full archive of downloadable tweets with “a very small percentage” of users.

Can you access your Twitter archive yet? What do you make of this update?
