Have you ever wondered whether all of your snarky tweets about X Factor and hilarious little quips about those working in social media could be collected into one place, so you can just sit there and browse through your own awesomeness? Well narcissists of the internet, that’s now possible, as Twitter is introducing a way for you to download all of the garbage you’ve been tweeting over the past few years into one handy file.
According to reports from Venture Beat and The Next Web, the feature has been rumoured for some time and now a select number of users will see a “Your Twitter Archive” option on their settings page.
If you’re one of the lucky ones to have the feature early, then when you click on that link you’ll be able to download all of your tweets, which will be emailed to you as a zip file in an html format. From there you can see all of your word vomit from the beginning of time (or when you signed up) and can browse by month.
Although we imagine this could in some way be useful for brands charting the way their content has evolved over the years we mainly just think it’s a bit pointless. The last thing we want to see is how dumb we sounded a year ago when we thought we were being really hilarious.
Do you plan on downloading your tweets? If so TELL US WHY THE HELL YOU’D BOTHER…
