If you post a lot of messages on Twitter, you might wish to save your Tweets to your computer, external hard drive or flash drive so that, in case something goes wrong you will have a nice backup of your Twitter Account. This might also be quite useful in case you want to re-read all your old conversations and messages but you don’t have an Internet connection! Whatever the reason, Twitter doesn’t offer any way to keep your Tweets in a secure place nor does it offers any proper solution to make sure that all your favorite and valuable “memories” will be saved from disruption or hardware failure. Let’s see how to overcome this problem thanks to web utilities, special websites which connect to your Twitter account and transfer all your data to a secure place of your choice.
TweetBackup is a web utility which, as its name suggests, is able to save your Tweets somewhere else. Other features include: daily backups, friend list backup, no installation required, very easy to understand, very easy User Interface, set-it and forget about it procedure.
