      Yeah, so what?

      People shouldn't be afraid of their government. The governments should be afraid of the people.

          Which ones PD, the ignorant a$$e$ in office or the military ones? lol

          Either way, still shouldn't be afraid.

        Actually, I have become quite an activist on every subject from #OWS to #Environment #Conservation #GulfOilSpill #Homeopathy #CAM #AltMed and everything under the sun that I feel citizen should have concerns.

        The more we gather strength the more our voice will be heard.

          And your point?

          Before you can do anything with regards to a "voice" or "strength", increased awareness is required.

            Exactly the purpose of twitter -> to create awareness about issues. It's a news making and viral information spreading vehicle.

        If the government really wants to archive my tweets containing my rantings over being fat and pregnant... then they obviously have too much free time. lol

          Ya know... I have this awesome rant hub that talks about society, and our beloved corporate America and government in general. Google absolutely and positively refuses to have anything to do with it. Maybe I should start tweeting the sucker, one line at a time...

      Hello ~ What do you mean not to crow about tweeting?

        Hi Debby.. Sorry I wasn't trying to deflect away from the post re your hub.

        - The reference was to birds smile

    Perhaps it's a good thing. Unless your tweets are treasonous or racist there should be nothing to be afraid of. If, however, you are planning the next gunpowder plot, Twitter might not be the ideal tool.

    This is old news.

    The Library of Congress is not the government. Yes, they are a government agency but not working for the federal government. They collect a copy of every book too you know. It's for historical reasons and research.

    And unless your Twitter username is your real name how are they going to know they come from you?

      It appears to be new news that Twitter has partnered with the Library of Congress to document tweets.
      I am bold enough to use my real name as my identity.

      1. Uninvited Writer profile image82
        Uninvited Writerposted 9 years agoin reply to this

        And if you write a book they will also document that. Still much ado about nothing.

        Well, I heard months ago that Tweets were being archived.

          You are ahead of everyone else! You must have inside information.

    A Saudi prince just bought $300 million dollars investment in to twitter?   He is also a major stockholder of News International?

    Just a little curious?

      quite fascinating. I had heard about this $300 million transaction but didn't realize he bought shares from other shareholders and not directly from Twitter.

    To tweet? Or not to tweet? That is the question.

    According to Glen Greenwald, we now have twitter terrorism. Of course what twits are threats will be determined by the Dear Leader. All evidence will be classified.

    I think having tweets archived might be useful to future historians.  So, it's okay with me.

      Actually, I like the idea of my existence being permanently archived in the Library of Congress.

      Now if I could just come up with some really brilliant tweets...

    I thought the internet inherently archived our tweets. *shrug*
