This post does not longer reflect the reality of Tweet Binder data. We are Twitter compliant and we always follow Twitter’s guidelines regarding data download. We will be updating the content of this post, so when you read it keep in mind that the content will be updated in the next days.

How to download your Twitter Archive

Twitter offers a free method for downloading a user’s tweet history. All of the tweets with various fields, such as date, are included in this repository. Due to the significant changes Twitter is suffering in November 2022, we have made it possible in Tweet Binder to save a Twitter archive of tweets. This has a cost and will only work for public accounts that have not been deleted, banned, or closed. It compiles all the original tweets that have been published up to that point. To download a Twitter Archive, just click the next button if you don’t want to wait.

Downloading tweets from a Twitter account and having the ability to store them in case the worst happens on Twitter has a cost, however it is extremely modest, and this functionality is an addition to Twitter’s capabilities. Tweet Binder suggests using the Tweet Binder approach only if downloading the file from the official source (Twitter) takes a a significant amount of time and you need data right away. These reports can between 12 to 24 hours to be generated.

How to navigate your tweets in the Twitter Archive

If an account has fewer than 35,000 tweets, Tweet Binder offers the option to display all of the account’s tweets in a dashboard. If the archive you are trying to obtain has more, you can see the tweets in the spreadsheet. You may browse and search tweets on the web dashboard, as well as organize them into tweet binders.
