Did you know that all your tweets have an expiration date? No, they do not get deleted off the Twitter’s servers, but they become unsearchable. According to the Twitter search documentation, Twitter indexes any tweets for 6-9 days. What that means is that if you tweeted something a week ago, chances are, you are not going to find it.
Unless Twitter comes up with an alternative to that, or maybe a “backup your account” feature like Facebook, you can use the following 3 free tools and services to back your tweets and archive them. Some of these services also allow a backup of account settings, friends lists etc.
A free service that lets you backup your tweets in a single click. Just login with your Twitter account and this site will do rest of the work. As soon as you sign up with BackupMyTweets, they’ll backup your existing tweets and check every day for new ones.
Tweetake is here to allow you to back-up your followers, people you are following and Tweets with just one click. Tweetake doesn’t currently back up your list of friends (or followers), it backs up their tweets.
Allows you to take backup of all your Twitter posts (tweets) and a list with your friends (the people you follow).
