Twitter has made a feature available to download all of the tweets that you have ever tweeted. This move by Twitter really shows that they are committed to the idea that user’s own the data that they share to the site. Twitter makes this data available as well as the meta data that goes along with every tweet.
This move by Twitter is following similar moves taken by Google and Facebook, the two other social media platforms. This action should be taken by every major platform that relies on user generated content. They also have made this data downloadable in various different ways such as html and csv files.
