Twitter enabled the most awaited option for users to download their past tweets and retweets (Tweet Archive) back in December 2012. The feature started to roll out slowly to a small percentage of users whose languages was set to English, however, starting today, users will be able to download their Twitter Archive in 12 more languages.
Today, the company announced in a tweet, stating that Twitter Archive is now available in the following languages: Hindi, Farsi, French, Hebrew, German, Spanish, Dutch, Malaysian, Norwegian, Finnish, Hungarian and Polish. This means that Twitter Archive option is now available in 13 languages including English.
To start downloading your past tweets, you need to first request for your account’s Twitter Archive. To do so, go to Settings and look for the new option “Your Twitter archive” at the bottom of the page. Once requested, you’ll receive a link to download a ZIP file of your tweet archive by email.
The company already has plans to make Twitter Archives available in all supported languages – “Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll make it available to all users around the world, for all the languages we offer.”
