Twitter has become the go-to social media service for many things. You can get the latest breaking news, often before the big networks like CNN even have it. You can follow weather updates -- especially handy when a big storm is headed in your direction. I follow beat writers who cover my favorite sports team and get the latest scoop, and even get breaking traffic updates from the local department of the highways. Plus you can share your own information, including photos and videos. Even companies use Twitter to announce information, answer customer questions and deal with potential problems.

Now there is a service that aims to let users save all of that data in document format. twDocs will allow you to export your Twitter as a document, in any of several different formats.

twdocs

Formats to Choose From:

  • PDF
  • DOC
  • XML
  • CSV
  • TXT
  • XLS
  • HTML

You can also choose what data you wish to export. This includes your own tweets, those from people you follow, your favorites, direct messages, your mentions and several other options.

There is also a list of Advanced features. All of these are enabled by default, and you will likely have no reason to change that, but it is still best to check them in case there is something you wish to alter.

Once you have everything set the way you want then click the hyperlink that corresponds to what you wish to export. You will then be prompted to choose how many tweets you wish to grab. By default this is set to 200, but you can choose up to 3,200. Now scroll to the bottom of the screen and click the "Go" button. The service will then be prompt you to authorize the app to access your Twitter account. By default the file will come as a PDF and, if you are using Chrome as your web browser, then you will be prompted to approve the download, as Google warns that it "may harm your computer".

Conclusion

First, you will need to trust the service to access your Twitter account. Beyond that, it is hard to really see the point of this, but I suppose some  businesses may wish to save tweets about themselves from customers, especially the positive ones, to perhaps use for future marketing. It is free, and it's a web app, so there is nothing to download and install. It also works well, and quickly.
