Time to Download Your Hospital’s Twitter Archive

If you’ve been Tweeting for a while now, it’s probably time to download your Twitter Archive and take a look at what you’ve been putting out into the world. I did this just the other day and it is fascinating to go back a few years and see how your Tweeting and content have evolved. Much of this has happened as our understanding of Twitter has been refined over time.

For your organization (hospital, health system, medical practice), I can see all kinds of benefits for having a recent copy of your archive on file and easily accessible.

Here’s how to access your Twitter archive:

  1. Simply go to your Twitter account.
  2. Click on “Settings” in the drop down menu.
  3. When the Settings page comes up, scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and you’ll see: Your Twitter Archive.
  4. Click on the option to download your archive.
  5. When your archive is ready, Twitter will send you an email with a link to use to download your archive in spreadsheet form.

Below is a screen shot of the email Twitter sent me when my archive was ready.
This was very easy to do.
