Twitter, which has renewed its web design this week, offers the possibility to download all the content and activity that you have made in the social network through a few simple steps. With this procedure you can store on your computer all the information related to your account: photographs, videos, followers, private messages, tweets … making a backup copy.
“The procedure must be done from a computer through the Twitter website.”
To get all your data you just have to go to your profile photo, located in the right corner of the platform’s desktop and click. Afterwards, you should go to «Profile and settings» and then click on «Settings and privacy».
Once the “Privacy Settings” panel is open, you will see a panel with the different sections and sub-sections of the page. You should look for the option “Your Twitter data”, click on it and request the file that will contain all your information.
Before making the request you should check if you have access to the email account linked to the social network. If everything is in order and you have already requested the shipment you will only have to wait for Twitter to collect all your information, compress it in a .zip format and send a file to your email address.
The duration of this process will depend on the activity you have had on your Twitter account and, above all, the material you have uploaded to the network, especially if they are photographs or videos.
When the social network has finished the process and you have sent the message to the email, you will only have to go to it and download the file that, as we said before, comes in zip format.
However, the message has an expiration date because Twitter will inform you that you have a period of one month to download the file with all your data. Once downloaded the file, you will only have to unzip it, so you will be generated a folder with all the material on your computer.
