Tweets Infrequently Appear in Google Alerts

July 30, 2009

Tweets from Twitter accounts are appearing in Google Alerts albeit infrequently.

I haven’t yet proven whether the frequency of Tweets coming from a Twitter account has any bearing on their appearance in Google Alerts or not.

However, today I updated my Twitter account more than normal and  I found three of my Tweets in a Google Alert.

What Happens To Your Tweets After A Week?

July 18, 2009

At what point does Twitter stop archiving Twitter account tweet data – after one week, one month, one year?

I can’t access my Twitter account’s updates beyond roughly the last one hundred Tweets.

Who’s responsible for archiving Twitter account updates – the 140 characters Tweet Stream – Twitter account holders or Twitter?

… Apparently Twitter isn’t responsible for archiving Tweets.

If Twitter was responsible for archiving all of an account’s Tweets,  I would be able to get to more than 100 of mine.
