    Gunther Eysenbach has noted that “As twitter and microblogging is gaining momentum as a social phenomenon, a number of researchers start wondering how to cite tweets ….. A related issue is how to digitally preserve and archive tweets. For example, using twitter search, one can currently only search a few months back, older tweets are not retrievable.” See: How to cite twitter, how to cite tweets, how to archive tweets (April 5, 2009).

    He then describes how to archive tweets using WebCite®.

    I’ve not archived the links to tweets that are included (as dates) in Updates sent to Twitter, March 2009, so they may cease to be retrievable. I plan only to archive tweets that provide information that may be of continuing interest.
