Can't remember what you tweeted two ago about the Academy Awards? Or four years ago about the presidential election? If you want to take a trip down memory lane, you can: Twitter said Wednesday it is introducing a feature that lets you download your Twitter archive.
You will get all your tweets — including retweets — going back to whenever you started using the short message blog, which launched in 2006.
"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," writes Mollie Vandor of Twitter's user services engineering team, on the site's blog.
The archive availability is being rolled out now to a "small percentage of users whose language is set to English," Vandor wrote.
To see if you're one of them, in Twitter go to Settings and "scroll down to the bottom to check for the option to request your Twitter archive," she writes. "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."
If you don't have the archive feature yet, it will be made available to users worldwide in the "coming weeks and months."
