Twitter opens its archive of every public tweet ever sent

Twitter has announced via its engineering blog that it’s making its entire public tweet archive searchable to everyone. Previously it had only made the archive accessible to select partners.

From today, Twitter’s search engine will index roughly half a trillion tweets. It promises it will serve up queries with an average latency of under 100ms. The move means historic tweets will now be accessible to everyone through Twitter’s public search.
