Library of Congress to receive entire Twitter archive

Library of Congress to receive entire Twitter archive, By Michael O’Connell, Federal News Radio, (Dec. 7, 2011).

The Library of Congress and Twitter have signed an agreement that will see an archive of every public Tweet ever sent handed over to the library’s repository of historical documents.

…Researchers will be able to look at the Twitter archive as a complete set of data, which they could then data-mine for interesting information.
