Be careful what you tweet! A new article on CNN says that… “Twitter and the Library of Congress announced Wednesday that every public tweet posted since Twitter started in 2006 will be archived digitally by the federal library.”
Just think! “Every 140-character snippet of info you’ve ever shared publicly on Twitter will soon have a home next to the Declaration of Independence.”
My big question is if they are they going to link to the photo and web shortcuts that are occasionally referenced in all these archived tweets. Without the link of reference, a lot of tweets will lose their meaning.
I think I’ll have to come up a special commemorative tweet for the occasion! Something for posterity! How about “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rig” (D’oh! That was 140 characters!)
