The Library of Congress No Longer Wants All the Tweets

The Library of Congress No Longer Wants All the Tweets

"After this time, the Library will continue to acquire tweets but will do so on a very selective basis under the overall guidance provided in the Library's Collections Policy Statements and associated documents".

Twitter gifted the Library with an archive of every public tweet from its launch in 2006 through 2010.

Twitter has changed substantially since it first partnered with the country's oldest cultural institution, however, and the Library of Congress said it no longer sees a need for archiving each and every one of the throngs of public tweets posted daily. In 2010, the institution reached an "exciting and groundbreaking" agreement with Twitter to acquire the text of every public tweet posted from 2006 through April 2010 in a "bold and celebrated" initiative that was praised by researchers. Since then, the Library has continued to receive most tweets from Twitter - missing are images, videos and any linked content.

Now that it has 12 years of tweets in the collection, the library suggested that it had largely fulfilled its original goal of documenting the rise and evolution of Twitter.

"The Library continuously reviews its ongoing acquisitions, whether subscriptions to newspapers or the receipt of tweets via a gift", the Library proclaimed.

On Tuesday, the federal research library said it's ending the practice of collecting all public tweets made over the platform.

"The Library generally does not collect comprehensively".

The Twitter collection will remain embargoed until access issues can be resolved in a cost-effective and sustainable manner.

The new collection policy will go into effect on 31 December. So that means for now we can not see this classless, albeit hilarious original Tweet by Donald Trump on September 11, 2013 which he has since deleted.

"The Library will focus its efforts on preserving the Twitter collection for future generations".
