Back in September, while speaking at the ONA 2012 conference in San Francisco, Dick Costolo announced that users will be able to download all their tweets by the end of this year. Costolo when asked, “When can we download all our tweets?” replied “End of the year.”
Our editor @rvmandalia first noticed the option sometime back. We tried to check our @ParityNews account but, that didn’t have the option enabled. It seems that the option is working only for few accounts at the moment. To check if you have been blessed by Twitter with that feature, go to Twitter settings and scroll to bottom.
Once the option is clicked upon Twitter sends out an email with the link through which the user can download his / her archive. There is no official word from Twitter yet about this option yet.
