Welcome to Justanswer.com, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.

If you want a hard copy of your tweets, starting from your very first one you need to download your archive.. Heres how

With that being said, you can also use a search function such as snap bird, on this page

Ok thanks. I tried the archive but that only captured tweets, not direct messages. I also was able to search for messages on snapbird but I could not download them. Any tools you are aware of to download the direct messages?
Expert:  Dustin replied 1 year ago.

There are paid tools that can create a true archive ( including your Dm's ) that way you can also search or print out y our direct messages.

Im not aware of any free tools as of yet that do this.. But archive social is a company that can arhive direct messages and make them searchable for record keeping or other purposes.
