Biz Stone, co-founder of Twitter, says, "The future seems bright for innovation on the Twitter platform and so it seems, does the past!" Biz announced that “Twitter donates access to entire archive of public Tweets to the Library of Congress for preservation and research.” He said “Since Twitter began, billions of tweets have been created. Today, fifty-five million tweets a day are sent to Twitter and that number is climbing sharply. A tiny percentage of accounts are protected but most of these tweets are created with intent that they’ll be publicly available. Over the years, tweets have become part of significant global events around the world—from historic elections to devastating disasters. It's very exciting that tweets're becoming part of history. It should be noted that there're some specifics regarding this arrangement. Only after a six-month delay can the Tweets will be used for internal library use, for non-commercial research, public display by the library itself, and preservation.”
