How to Download Twitter History Archive


Hi. I’m Max Dalton, and in this video I’m going
to talk through how to request, download, and search your Twitter data archive. Twitter is a great platform for reaching people
and getting information out there. However, searching through old tweets for
something you sent out can be a nightmare, as there is no good way to see or search your
archive of tweets on any of the platforms you can access Twitter through. The best way to see all of your tweets in
one place where you can easily search them is to download your Twitter archive. Twitter includes an HTML interface with your
archive that lets you easily search your entire history of tweets offline. Finally, it’s important to note that you can
only request and download your Twitter archive through the desktop version of Twitter’s website,
and you can’t request or download your Twitter archive through the Twitter mobile app. And now, let’s walk through how to request,
download, and search your Twitter data archive. Step 1. Open your Web browser, navigate to twitter.com,
and then log into your account. You’ll land on the home screen for your Twitter
account. Step 2. Click the picture associated with your profile
in the upper right corner of the screen to open a drop-down menu, and then click “Settings
and Privacy” in the drop-down menu. The Account screen appears. Step 3. Scroll down to locate the Content section
on the right side of the screen, and then click “Request Your Archive” to the right
of Your Twitter Archive toward the bottom of the content section. A dialog box appears, notifying you that your
request has been received and that a link to your Twitter archive will be sent to the
email address associated with your Twitter account when the information is ready. Click “Close” to close the dialog box. Step 4. Monitor the email address associated with
your Twitter account. You’ll eventually get an email from [email protected]
with a subject line that reads It’s Tweet Archive Time. Click the “Download Now” link in the email
to be redirected to a Your Twitter Archive page on Twitter’s website. Step 5. Click “Download” on the Your Twitter Archive
page. The ZIP file containing your Twitter archive
will be downloaded to your computer. Step 6. Right-click the file you downloaded to your
computer, and then click “Extract All.” A window appears prompting you to choose a
location to extract the ZIP file contents. Choose your location, and then click “Extract.” Step 7. Navigate to the extracted folder, open it,
and then double-click the “Index” file to launch it in a Web browser. A simple HTML page opens. You can click an individual month block in
a specific year on the right side of the screen, and all of the tweets in that month will appear
on the left side of the screen. Alternatively, you can use the Search All
Tweets field toward the top of the screen to search your entire tweet archive. Finally, you can click the silhouette in the
upper right corner of the screen to open a drop-down menu that you can use to access
your Twitter account details. Congratulations! You now know how to request, download, and
search through your Twitter archive. Thanks for watching. Click the video link on the right side of
