This feature had been long been asked for by users of the micro blogging service and now looks like Twitter are happy to fulfill the request. It was announced back in July that Twitter may be getting this ready when Costolo told the New York times “We’re working on a tool to let users export all of their tweets. You’ll be able to download a file of them”. Twitter is also to add a tool that will let users curate and display tweets to make better reporting of breaking news items and events with an option for live polls.
