Archiving Twitter

April 15th, 2010 by Brian Leave a reply »

There are a lot of Twitter users, upwards of 105 million registered users. Even if they update just once a day, that’s a lot of messages.

Google has been tagging tweets to include into live searches. That’s how I found the most current information about the iPad when Steve Jobs announced it.

Now the Library of Congress is going to archive all public messages. Readers will be able to cross-reference tons of information. I love following NASA Twitter accounts to get updated news way before regular media has anything to say. It will take on a very organized format and be preserved for a while.
