How To Download Twitter Tweets Archive


With a Twitter profile with many followers, you should definitely “stay on the chunk.” You will definitely be tweeting regularly with links, photos, videos or GIFs. And since everything is stored in the “cloud”, you would really like to have a copy of this content on your computer, so locally. Not knowing how to proceed, you asked on the Internet how to download the Tweet archive , and you ended up on my blog.

In the next tutorial, I’ll explain what you need to do to download all of your tweets, starting with the first one you posted. Then you will find all your messages in a folder on your computer. Let’s see how to proceed.

How to download Twitter Tweets Archive

Twitter tweets are messages that are posted to an instant social network. If you choose to download them, your profile will be backed up.

Although this copy contains your posts, information about you, and all of your media, you cannot use it later to restore your Twitter profile . This will work in the same way as copying your Facebook profile, which means you can view your content locally, but not restore it to the social network. This is, of course, until you create a new twitter identical to the one you downloaded. I am sure that the date will remain today, you will not be able to “go back in time”.

How the tweet archive works

An archive of tweets can look like a section of a social network where messages or chats are posted. In fact, in this case we mean a feature that allows you to download in one zip file all the tweets that have been posted from that profile over time.

Once downloaded, you will be able to view multimedia content by playing it using programs or applications on your PC, tablet or smartphone.

Be careful, however, to use an unlimited download connection , as depending on the number of tweets, several gigabytes (GB) of data traffic is likely to be consumed.

How to request archived tweets


You can request processing of your tweet archive directly from your account. To continue if you are using a computer, follow these steps:

  1. Connect to Twitter site
  2. Sign in , click on your profile picture and select Settings and Privacy .
  3. In this section, under the Account section , scroll to the bottom of the page and select the Request your archive option.

If you are using the Twitter app for iOS or Android, sorry to tell you this, but you cannot download tweets from your smartphone or tablet at this time (unless you are using your browser in desktop mode).

How to download archived tweets


It doesn’t take a lot of work to download the Tweet archive . Once it has been processed by Twitter, you will receive an email from Twitter stating “Time to archive tweets.” Open it, and when you are sure that you are connected to the network of unlimited Internet, select the blue “Download now” button .

You will then be redirected to your Twitter profile, in particular to the “Your Tweet Archive” section. Now all you have to do is click the Download button and wait. The file containing your tweets will begin downloading.

How to open a tweet archive

After downloading the archived tweets , you will have a .zip file in your Downloads folder. Just unzip it to view its contents.

After unpacking the archive of tweets, it goes to the main folder. In it, double-click the index.html file. This will open a web page that can also be viewed offline, i.e. without Internet. Here you will find all your tweets sorted in chronological order and can be viewed at any time.
