Download your Tweets
Twitter is now letting you download your Tweets and download them in a 'zip.' file and then view them in an online archive. At the beginning of this week the feature was exclusive to a small number of users however now the social networking company is rolling the feature out to everyone. Although it might take quite a bit more time for the option to 'Download my tweets' to appear at the bottom of your settings it will be there eventually so you can waste your precious time reading random things which you wrote many years ago.
