Twitter archive available for a dozen more languages

Twitter had earlier this month supported another 12 languages as part of a global rollout of the archive facility

Twitter is offering archives of tweets in 12 more languages as part of a global rollout of the facility.

Users can now access their archives in Danish, Filipino, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Swedish, Thai, Turkish and Urdu, Twitter said in a message on Thursday.

Twitter introduced in December the facility for users to download an archive of their tweets and retweets going back to when they first started using the service. It said it was rolling out the feature slowly, starting with a small percentage of users whose language was set to English. It promised to make the archive feature available to all users around the world for all the languages it offers over the "coming weeks and months."

In early March, the service had added support for 12 more languages, including Dutch, Farsi, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Malay, Norwegian, Polish and Spanish.

With the Twitter archive, users can view tweets by month or search the archive for Twitter messages by words, phrases, hashtags or @usernames, the company said in December. "You can even engage with your old Tweets just as you would with current ones," it added.

The option to download the Twitter archive can be activated from Settings on Twitter, which has a "Request Your Archive" option. Users receive an email with instructions on how to access their archive when it is ready for download.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
