The company also added a batch of 12 more languages earlier this month: Dutch, Farsi, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Malay, Norwegian, Polish, & Spanish.

Twitter first began allowing users to download a complete archive of their tweets last December after promising the feature earlier in the year. However, it was originally only available to users who had marked their language as English. Counting today’s latest batch, a total of 25 languages are supported for archiving.

If you’re new to this, head to your account settings on Twitter.com and request your archive. Twitter will take a few minutes to compile and then email the results to you. Your tweets arrive as a package that includes an HTML browser interface file and CSV and JSON exports.
