Time to go back and delete all of those juvenile tweets you posted in 2010, as Twitter plans on archiving every tweet ever sent.

That’s right, every tweet ever sent could soon be available through an archive, so that drunken night last summer during which you tweeted Justin Bieber 73 times will be accessible.

In the current system, Twitter users are only able to access tweets dating back to a certain point.

That is all set to change towards the end of this year, as Twitter plans to allow users to download an entire archive of their tweets.

CEO Dick Costolo announced the change during a talk at the university of Michigan, and suggested it would be put into action by the end of the year.

It has been suggested that the archive would be accessible in the form of a downloadable database, and not something that would be readily available by simply viewing online.

At the moment, the site allows users to access only the latest 3,200 messages they have sent, which can be a matter of weeks for addicted tweeters.

So get ready for shit to hit the fan, and be sure to contact an online reputation consultant, as having every tweet ever sent readily accessible may haunt some.
