You can also find a guide to the procedure on the Twitter site, here.
- First, go to the settings menu of your app or Twitter page.
- Go to “Your account” and select “Download an archive of your data”.
- Enter your password and confirm it, then choose whether you want to receive a verification code by email or text message.
- When it arrives, enter the verification code you receive and continue.
- You will now see the “Request archive” option.
- You now have to wait up to 24 hours to receive an email or notification that the archive is ready.
- Once you are informed that it is ready, go back to the same part of the settings menu and click on “Download data”.
- Wait for the download to complete, then unzip the .zip file to access your data.
And There you go ! In many ways, this is a simple process, but it can take a bit of time if you’ve been a prolific Tweeter for many years.
