I have over 6,600 tweets at my Blogging Bistro Twitter account. While Twitter is not the primary social network I use, I do love to share links to stuff I’m learning about social media marketing.
In case I ever want do download my 6,600+ tweets and archive them for posterity, Twitter has a feature that allows you to do just that.
It’s easy. Under “Settings,” scroll down to “Your Twitter Archive” and click “Request your archive.”
Twitter will email you a link to a ZIP file of your archives when your file is ready to download.
I use a PC and when I saved my .zip file, it created a folder in my “Downloads” area titled “tweets.”
This feature is available in 13 languages and will archive your tweets in the language you specified in the account settings.
Here is a tutorial from HubSpot’s blog shows you how you can use those archived tweets:
Twitter announced that they have reduced the character limit from 140 to 118 for tweets that include a URL, and 117 for tweets that include an https link.
If you use a scheduling service such as HootSuite and have already scheduled tweets with links, you’ll need to shorten them. (Source: Mashable)
