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. You can even engage with your old Tweets just as you would with current ones.Twitter Rolling Out Tweet Archive Capability [blog.twitter.com]
Go to Settings and scroll down to the bottom to check for the option to request your Twitter archive. If you do see it, go ahead and click the button. You’ll receive an email with instructions on how to access your archive when it’s ready for you to download.
If you don’t see that option in Settings today, know that it’s on the way! We’re rolling out this feature slowly, starting today with a small percentage of users whose language is set to English. Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll make it available to all users around the world, for all the languages we offer.

I can see already people saying "now everyone can have a record of every time he tried a new coffee", but I welcome everything that frees up my data and makes it available to me.

Not that I want my Tweets or Facebook updates, per se, but I wish FB had a similar thing (I know you can request your data, but it's not the same as just getting a download).

In other words, I don't see a need for this currently, but I can imagine a millions situations where I might.

I can also see that companies who need to keep compliance records would be find that task simplified.
