Your Twitter Archive

Mollie Vandor:

Today, we’re introducing the ability to download your Twitter archive, so you’ll get all your Tweets (including Retweets) going back to the beginning. Once you have your Twitter archive, you can view your Tweets by month, or search your archive to find Tweets with certain words, phrases, hashtags or @usernames.

There’s supposed to be a “Request your archive” button at the bottom of the Settings page, but I don’t see it in my account. This feature hasn’t been rolled out to all users yet. I’ve been maintaining a local archive of my tweets using TweetNest.

I am one of the lucky one to get the button. Here is the next step: https://www.dropbox.com/s/50wnz8jekq8ldoo/Twitter%20archive%20in%20email.png

And then this email: https://www.dropbox.com/s/xxbpvm160ofucjt/Twitter%20archive%20ready.png

Which leads to:

And finally, a zip archive with an offline archive, with nice html, css, js:

Also included in the zip files are json and csv versions of the data.

And where's the button to ask not to archive any tweet?
