Twitter has begun testing a long-awaited feature that lets users download their entire archive tweets.According to the micro-blogging service is the test run “with a very small percentage of users.”
On the weekend (“Request Archive”) reported Twitter users from the new setting option “Request your archive.” In a brief statement under the new button it says: “You can create a file with your request information, starting with your very first tweet. Once the file is ready for download, you will receive by email a link. “
Twitter CEO Dick Costolo announced in September at a conference of the Online News Association in San Francisco that is desired by many users with the function expected by year end. “This is something important that we really want to bring out to the end of the year.”
Thus Twitter achieved parity with other companies that also allow export of data created by users. Of the principle on the basis that “users should have control over data in any Google stored products “, allows Google’s Data Liberation Front tool easy import and export of data to and from Google services such as Gmail or Drive. Also, Facebook offers an option that allows its members can request a copy of the published in the social network information such as photos, links, messages, friend lists and chat conversations.
