Twitter Working On Ways For Users To Get Their Old Tweets

Posted Jul 25, 2012

Twitter is working on ways for users to go back and retrieve their old tweets, which are month than a few weeks or months old.  Twitter CEO Dick Costolo reported in the New York Times that the social network is building a tool that would allow users to get the tweets back.

?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.?  Facebook has a similar tool that lets you download your data that is at least a couple of years old.

There are some third party services that lets you see your old tweets like a website called Oldtweets.  Costolo did not specifically mention when the tool would be launch.  The tool is not as easy as it sounds to build.
