Twitter Working to Give Users Access to All Tweets from the Past

Twitter is working on a way to let users retrieve all tweets they have ever sent. At the moment, historical tweets tend to fall off the system after you hit a certain amount of tweets… sometimes around 1000 although the bar often shifts.

Twitter still has the old tweets but just doesn’t have a way of letting you see them.

The new service wont allow you to get your tweets from the regular timeline of tweets. Instead, Twitter will make them available as a download. The downside is that you’ll only be able to see your own old tweets and not those of others. The CEO of Twitter said that seeing others old tweets is another problem that would need to be tackled.

There is no release date for the service to be launched and all we know at the moment is that it is currently being worked on.
