The Library of Congress will store archived copies of every public Tweet ever sent, beginning with the company's founding in March 2006. The archives will be stored digitally with the intention of preserving Tweets related to important historical events.

Google has also announced a new product, called Google Replay, which allows users to search for and access Tweets from a specific moment in time, also aimed at finding and accessing Tweets related to historical events.
