Be honest, do you automatically read or save every tweet that comes your way? If you’re busy with work and everything else in between, the answer is probably no. Sadly for Twitter enthusiasts, those tweets they didn’t have time to read right away seem to be disappearing forever, despite their efforts to locate them using Twitter search.
According to the recent article, Twitter Becomes More Anti-Search, No More Access to Archived Tweets, this “black hole” in Twitter is due to the fact that users are required to enter an old tweet’s direct URL in order to view it. Any archived message older than a week is labeled “unavailable” by Twitter. Even Google might not be enough to help you find that old tweet you really wanted to read but didn’t have time to click on until now. Unfortunately, we have to accept that those tweets have disappeared forever…or do we?
If you need to archive your tweet history, Arkovi has the solution. Arkovi archives your entire Twitter account activity, including tweets, direct messages, mentions and retweets.

Unlike in Twitter, no message in Arkovi is labeled “unavailable”. You can view every tweet, direct message, mention, and your retweet from the beginning of your Twitter existence.
