Twitter has announced that all users now have the option to download a file containing every tweet they have ever posted.

The micro-blogging service has begun rolling out the feature to all account holders, having trialled the feature with a select few earlier this month.

"We're introducing the ability to download your Twitter archive, so you'll get all your tweets (including retweets) going back to the beginning," said Twitter in a blog post.

"Once you have your Twitter archive, you can view your tweets by month, or search your archive to find tweets with certain words, phrases, hashtags or @usernames. You can even engage with your old tweets just as you would with current ones."

The new service allows users to back-up their data with a single click, or withdraw all of the content stored on their profile should they wish to close their account.

The feature is gradually being distributed across the Twitter user base, with some subscribers likely to have to wait weeks, or even months, to receive it.
