Library of Congress Can't Deal With All Your Tweets Anymore

"The initiative was bold and celebrated among research communities", the release said. "With social media now established, the Library is bringing its collecting practice more in line with its collection policies".
"After this time, the Library will continue to acquire tweets but will do so on a very selective basis under the overall guidance provided in the Library's Collections Policy Statements and associated documents".
It also notes that only text tweets are collected - not images, videos or linked content.
Twitter has gone from processing about 5,000 tweets a day in 2007, to more than 50 million tweets daily when it partnered with the Library of Congress in 2010.
Even the Library of Congress can't keep up with Twitter anymore. It also hasn't helped that Twitter has doubled the size of a single tweet to 280 characters.
"The Library generally does not collect comprehensively".
The LOC did not offer specific details regarding the selection of the tweets for the archive moving forward.
The Library of Congress will continue to archive certain tweets after January 1, but will focus on posts that are "thematic and event-based", including tweets concerning political elections, public policy matters or other issues of nation interest, it said in a statement.
The entire Twitter archive is not allowed for public access and will remain until embargo "until access issues can be resolved in a cost-effective and sustainable manner". "There is no projected timetable for providing public access at this time". The collection of tweets will still proceed until December 31, 2017, but there will be heavily curated. So that means for now we can not see this classless, albeit hilarious original Tweet by Donald Trump on September 11, 2013 which he has since deleted. "The Library saw an opportunity to document the emergence of online social media for future generations".
