Twitter to let you download all your tweets

Twitter will soon let you download all your tweets, including the oldest. Finally it is working on a solution to one of the most obvious things which is missing from the social network right now – the option to let the user go back to all the old and oldest tweets.

Twitter’s CEO Dick Costolo told The New York Times that the social network is working on a tool to let users retrieve all of the updates they’ve posted to the social network. “We’re working on a tool to let users export all of their tweets,” Costolo said. “You’ll be able to download a file of them.”

Costolo however, did not give the New York Times a launch date for the new feature, but he did say he was confident the tools would reach users at some point. He also said the export tool will only let users grab their own tweets, not tweets from the general masses.

According to Business Insider, some third-party services have come up with workaround solutions to this problem, including one new site called Oldtweets, which lets users search through all the tweets posted to Twitter in the first year after the social network launched.
