The U.S. Library of Congress, which archives many forms of media for their cultural and historical significance, has announced it will keep a digital archive of every public tweet that has been broadcast on Twitter since its inception in March 2006.

Can't be that expensive to store, especially if your using WORM media. And tbh its a good idea in my mind. So much of humanity's digital revolution has already been lost (just ask Moonlit about the IPTV archive project), so storing something as big as twitter should be stored for future generations to look at.
