After the recent announcement that Groklaw will be archived at the Library of Congress, mjn writes with word that the push to archive more digital content continues: “The US Library of Congress announced a deal with Twitter to archive all public tweets, dating back to Twitter’s inception in March 2006. More details at their blog. No word yet on precisely what will be done with the collection, but besides entering your friends’ important updates on the quality of breakfast into the permanent archival record, the deal may improve access for researchers wanting to analyze and mine Twitter’s giant database.”
