Twitter working on way to let users search through every tweet they’ve ever made

Twitter CEO Dick Costolo told The New York Times Tuesday that users will eventually be able to access even their oldest tweets.

“We’re working on a tool to let users export all of their tweets,” Costolo said. “You’ll be able to download a file of them.”

Currently, Twitter users can only see the last few thousand posts they made.

But while Twitter plans to remove that limitation in the future, it won’t let users look back at everything ever posted to the micro-blogging site.

“It’s two different search problems,” Costolo said. “It’s a different way of architecting search, going through all tweets of all time. You can’t just put three engineers on it.”
