Library of Congress gets Twitter archive
I so look forward to seeing how this all shakes out over time, how the archive is made accessible, and all the gritty details, but I did want to shout it out that at least somebody has the archive, and that somebody is a library (yippee!). And while the LoC has had a flag staked in the digital preservation claim for a long time, here it is loud and clear:
“In other words, if you’re looking for a place where important historical and other information in digital form should be preserved for the long haul, we’re it!” From http://www.loc.gov/tweet/how-tweet-it-is.html.
Here’s hoping next semester’s Digital Preservation class will get to tear into it. Yum!
