Twitter confirmed today that it has began the process of rolling out a new feature that will allow users to download their tweets. The feature had reportedly been rolled out this feature to select users earlier this month but now the feature should be avaliable to everyone.




Users can activate the feature by going to Settings. There they can check off an option to request your Twitter archive. An email with instructions on how to access the archive will be sent when it's ready to download.


The feature is set to fully deploy over the next few months so not all users will be able to download their tweets today.


"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," the company said in a blog post. "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," the post continues."
