It seems Twitter has kept its promise to create an archive feature.

Twitter’s CEO, Dick Costolo, announced plans to give users the ability to download every tweet they’ve ever sent during a keynote presentation in September — an option that just became a reality for some users this week.

But, the new feature isn’t available to everyone just yet. GigaOM explains.

“A Twitter spokeswoman confirmed Sunday afternoon that the company is ‘currently testing the ability to download your Tweets with a very small percentage of users.’ She said they could not provide more information on when this will roll out more broadly.”

If you do have the ability to ‘Request your archive,’ it works similarly to Facebook’s archive.  After making the request, you’ll get an email with a downloadable file of your tweet history. PC Magazine reports the archives looks alot like twitter does now and...

“...you can browse through your tweets by month or search the entire archive for specific messages, and the archive even comes with a handy little graph to show you just how busy you've been on Twitter each month.”

CNET says the new feature will bring Twitter in line with Facebook and Google, which already offer similar features.

Costolo has said that he wanted the feature to be available by the end of the year. But, is that necessarily a good thing? One twitter user found out old tweets can be a little embarrassing...

“OH MY GOD! I USED TO TALK HERE IN THE THIRD PERSON WHEN I FIRST STARTED!! * hangs head in shame *”

Twitter has not announced when the feature will be available to everyone.
