Library of Congress to store entire Twitter database!

Library of Congress to store entire Twitter database!

Library of Congress has announced that they are collaborating with Twitter to index their entire content in their database.

This means that every single public tweet you might have posted would now become part of the Library of Congress.

Library of Congress spoke about this initiative:

Just a few examples of important tweets in the past few years include the first-ever tweet from Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey (http://twitter.com/jack/status/20), President Obama’s tweet about winning the 2008 election (http://twitter.com/barackobama/status/992176676), and a set of two tweets from a photojournalist who was arrested in Egypt and then freed because of a series of events set into motion by his use of Twitter (http://twitter.com/jamesbuck/status/786571964) and (http://twitter.com/jamesbuck/status/787167620).
