Twitter to Launch Search and Download Tool For Your Old Tweets

Twitter’s CEO told a group of reporters and editors at The New York Times yesterday that the service would soon allow users to download ‘a file’ of all of their Tweets,reports Jenna Wortham.

This ability was touted by CEO Dick Costolo:

“We’re working on a tool to let users export all of their tweets,” Mr. Costolo said in a meeting with reporters and editors at The New York Times on Monday. “You’ll be able to download a file of them.”

Costolo said that, while users would let users dig through their own archive of Tweets, he didn’t see a feature on the horizon that would give them access to all of the tweets posted to the service from every user. He said that the search problems were very different and said that you “can’t just put three engineers on it.”

There was no timeline given for the release of either a search or download tool for old Tweets.
