Introducing Tweet Library

Tweet Library keeps a local searchable archive of your own tweets, favorites, and retweets so that you can find important tweets later. It adds collections so that you can curate your timeline by organizing related tweets together. And it includes custom filters to automatically group or hide tweets.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why doesn't Tweet Library have my favorite Twitter feature? → Some common features weren't included with 1.0, but may be added in future releases. Please email support if something is missing so that it can be prioritized.

I've posted many thousands of tweets to Twitter. Why did Tweet Library only download the most recent 3200? → This is a limit imposed by Twitter. I expect it will eventually be lifted, and then Tweet Library will be able to download additional tweets. In the meantime, Tweet Library will still keep adding to its archive on your iPad as you post additional tweets. You can also import your full Twitter history by tapping the arrow button next to Archive in the sidebar.
