Have you ever wondered what you had for lunch 19 days ago? What about how many times you “released some gas” on November 12, 2008? What about how many times your followers said the phrase “Justin Bieber” the day after the Grammy Awards? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, I have found a service that can help!
In all seriousness, there is always a good reason to backup your contributed content on all social services. Last night at the Austin Co-Founders Wanted meetup, BackupMyTweets (BMT) co-founder Joshua Baer provided an overview of how his Twitter backup service works. The basic concept is simple…you enter your Twitter username and BackupMyTweets will create a backup of all of your posted messages on Twitter from the day you created your account. Apparently Twitter will only display the last 3,200 messages you have posted.
The service is free to use if (I believe) you allow BMT to send out a message into your Twitter stream letting your followers know you are using BMT. You can pay $5/year to grab the BMT premium edition which doesn’t send out the auto-message and it also will backup all of your followers tweets too so you can create a timeline back to the day you created your Twitter account.
Over 20,000 people have signed up for the service so far and there are paying customers as well. Joshua is looking for someone to run the business. He said that with someone working on the management full-time, he expects they could increase their userbase 10x without much work. If you are interested in this position, you can contact Joshua on Twitter.
