Every public tweet since Twitter’s inception in March 2006 has been and will continue to be archived digitally at the Library of Congress. This means that the library is ingesting more than 50 million tweets every single day.

The implications of this are overwhelming. Just think, social networking has made it possible for future generations to find out what was once “trending.”
All the people that we misquoted, and what exactly we had for lunch that one time. And, of course, every single OMG Fact that we’ve tweeted out!
