- NoLoc.org - [are you a Twitter.com user?] did you know that every single "Twitter tweet" will be archived forever by the US government. However, you have a choice ... you can use NoLOC to set your tweets free! Starting 10/10/2010, Twitter will begin transferring all of your tweets to the Library of Congress for archiving. Tweets that are 24 weeks old (6 months) or older will be saved forever, and you will no longer be able to delete them. By using #NoLOC.org, you continue to use Twitter like normal, but when you tweet turns 23 weeks old, NoLoc.org will delete it automatically. ?Why 23 Weeks? According to the agreement between Twitter and the Library of Congress, all tweets that are not deleted within 6 months (24 weeks) of their submission date will be eligible for archival. So, on the 23rd week (give or take a 1 or 2 days), your tweet will be deleted by NoLOC.org's servers.
