How To Backup Your Twitter Account:
Recently Twitter added export tweet feature which made most of 3rd party tool useless, and many of them like Backupmytweets and few other shut down. So, I’m updating this post in January 2014 and sharing the official method to export and backup your Twitter account.
This is one of the dead-simple method and all you need to do is, login to your Twitter account via a web-browser and go to your settings page. Here is the direct link to access your setting page. Scroll to the bottom and you will see an option to request your archive. Click on that, and twitter will send you a link via eMail which will have backup of all your tweets starting from your first day tweet.
It will take some time before you will get the back-up link, so relax and grab your coffee.
Do you prefer to archive your Tweets? If yes then which tool you use to take backup of your Twitter account?
