Reblogged | Overlooked Info: Get Your Twitter archive | Twitter Blog. “UPDATED”
If you tweet, then at some point you will found yourself wanting to go back in time and explore your past Tweets. Maybe you wanted to recall your reaction to the an election, reminisce on what you said to your partner on your anniversary or breakup, or just find your funniest past Tweets. We all at some point for many different reasons, would like to explore our Twitter past.
Yes, there are many ‘twitter search engines‘ boasting to help find your old tweets easily but not one has worked well enough for me…or even been any less painful than scrolling 4+yrs back manually on my own..
So hopefully you will find today’s Reblogged/Post to have as much value as I have. Easily get and access your own Twitter Archive.
Ok, So here’s how you do it:
Today, we’re introducing the ability to download your Twitter archive, so you’ll get all your Tweets (including Retweets) going back to the beginning. Once you have your Twitter archive, you can view your Tweets by month, or search your archive to find Tweets with certain words, phrases, hashtags or @usernames. You can even engage with your old Tweets just as you would with current ones.
Go to Settings and scroll down to the bottom to check for the option to request your Twitter archive. If you do see it, go ahead and click the button. You’ll receive an email with instructions on how to access your archive when it’s ready for you to download.
After you get the .zip file sent in your email:
unzip/ and click open the “index.html” file
And it will open in your default browser just like a webpage. You now have the power to select what year & month & scroll to find tweets from your past.
if you plan to keep the unzipped folder in place on your hardrive (& aren’t afraid of prying eyes) go ahead and bookmark the the page in your browser for later use.
