Twitter finally allows you to archive your tweets

Twitter users, rejoice: the micro-blogging service may finally be rolling out an option to request and download your tweet history.

A report on tech site CNET said some Twitter users have reported seeing a new settings feature letting them "Request your archive."

"You can request a file containing your information, starting with your first tweet. A link will be emailed to you when the file is ready for download," CNET quoted the supposed message as saying.

But it said this feature did not appear to be widespread as of early Monday (Manila time).

CNET noted Twitter CEO Dick Costolo had announced during a keynote at the Online News Association conference in San Francisco last September that it may let users download their tweets.

Other Internet giants have already allowed users to download their data, including Google and Facebook. — TJD, GMA News
