twitter backup

Remember the Twitter crash of Black Thursday (back in July 2008 when scores of users lost followers overnight) or the recent tweets that were never posted? That might happen again... What if you could back up your entire Twitter account or just the followers, direct messages, favourites, your tweets or friends? Or:
  • You may change your Twitter name and want to re-follow the people you were following, and contact the people who were following you
  • You may want to refer to an older Tweet - currently Twitter does not keep all of your older Tweets
  • You may just like backing things up, ‘just in case’, like us

You can do all that with Tweetake, a free service that can back up everything within your Twitter account.
