Creating Your Own Twitter Backup

August 8, 2009

A couple of weeks ago I scraped all of my Tweets, Followers and the people I was following from my Twitter account to create a back up copy in the event something went awry with the Twitter cloud.

As most every Twitter account holder now knows, was the target of a Distributed Denial of Service attack over the last several days which indeed made the Twitter cloud inaccessible for web users of their service – like me.

Having a back of my Twitter account didn’t help me any while their service was down, but knowing I had all of my account data backed up in another location like here within WordPress did give me extra piece of mind.

The following is the seventh installment of my Twitter account backup.
