The Twitter archive contains all your tweets, replies, followers, lists, and more. By going to the Account Options page on the website or in the app, you can get a comprehensive history and twitter archive of all your Twitter activity, including all of your tweets, photographs, and follows. According to the website “Business Inside,” the download may take some time depending on how active your account is, but you will be able to download it on any device.
How to Make a Request for a Twitter Archive Data Download
These steps are the same whether you’re using the website or the mobile app.
- If you haven’t already, go to Twitter or open the app and log in to your account.
- On the website, tap More in the left sidebar; on the mobile app, tap your profile image in the top-right corner.
- Go to Settings and then Privacy.
- Choose ‘Your account‘, then download a backup of your data.
- You will be prompted to re-enter your password and two factor authentication code; if you do not have two factor enabled, you will be sent to a different page to do so.
- Choose Request Archive.
You’ll have to wait for Twitter to construct your archive, and once it’s done, you’ll get a notification on Twitter as well as an email with a link to it.
- Downloading and viewing the Twitter archive When you open the notification on Download or return to the data list using the procedures above, you will be prompted to enter your password and two-factor authentication code again.
- Click on Download Archive, then again on the following page; you will be given a ZIP file to download; this may take some time depending on your internet connection and the size of the file.
- After downloading the ZIP file, decompress and open it.
- There are numerous files and directories included within. The most important are as follows:
• Your archive.html is a personalized web page containing data that Twitter believes will be most useful to you, such as all of your original Tweets (no retweets or replies), your direct messages, your last year or more of likes, and your “Moments.” and your listings, and a massive amount of information that advertisers have collected about you, and you can open this file in almost any web browser.
• Within the data folder is README.txt, a document that describes what each file in the folder is and what it contains.
• You’ll also see a folder named “Tweet Media, which holds every photo and video you’ve ever published or retweeted on Twitter.
And make sure to download your archive within a few days of receiving it, because it will expire after roughly a week and you will have to request it again.
