Library of Congress to Store Entire Twitter Archive
The Library of Congress today formally announced - via it's twitter page - to begin digitally archiving every single public tweet ever posted since March, 2006.
Related: - Why the Library of Congress cares about archiving our tweets: "... The Library sees Twitter as a "technology change" in the way we communicate. Those don't happen often, and the Library has an interest in documenting each major new communications platform."
