Library of Congress Acquires Entire Twitter Archive

Matt Raymond from The Library of Congress:

Every public tweet, ever, since Twitter’s inception in March 2006, will be archived digitally at the Library of Congress. That’s a LOT of tweets, by the way: Twitter processes more than 50 million tweets every day, with the total numbering in the billions.

Update: Server is down (surprise, surprise, it’s a WordPress site), but Google has it cached.
