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.
