Have you ever been a victim of unwanted tweet loss? Sounds funny, right? Well, it’s not funny for some people, especially business owners. If you’re a business owner who uses tweets to track transactions and client details such as comments, appointments, and payments, you might want to consider getting a backup for your treasured tweets.
In fact, there are at least 40 Twitter backup sites available on the Web. Some of them are free to use, while others are not. What I am going to share with you are 5 Twitter backups that I trust. And the good thing with these sites is that offer free services.
1. Twistory

Twistory is a calendar-type backup system designed exclusively for public Twitter accounts. Yes, you have to set your account to public to use Twistory. The system also organizes your tweets according to the date you saved them. Its 3200-tweet limit is a good start to backing up your precious tweets.

2. BackupMyTweets

Like Twistory, BackupMyTweets’ 3200-tweet limit is a good way to extend your backup system. The service features a classic interface where your tweets are archived like an easy updating system. No fancy web design here; your tweets appear in simple line-by-line details. In addition, if you want to back up your email, blogs, and pics, this website offers those as well, with BackupMyMail, BackupMyBlog, and BackupMyPics.

3. Tweetbackup

Powered by the ever-popular Backupify, and also with a 3200-tweet limit, Tweetbackup is a powerful tool to save your Twitter updates. Just follow and authorized them on Twitter and everything is good to go.

4. TweetNest

My current favorite, TweetNest, is more than a backup system because it’s a separate program where you can archive and backup tweets and customize your own page. If you are a newbie like me, uploading this would take you some time, but with the help of a more technologically-inclined friend, you can follow the systematic process stated on the homepage.

5. MkTwitter

Exclusively for Windows users, this backup system lets you save your tweets with ease. Mac users can try the popular TwitLibrary at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tweet-library/.

Some of the sites listed above are just products of my fondness for spending my free time playing with search engines. If you are not contented and happy with what I’ve shared here, feel free to search the Web to find a tweet backup service that will suit your preferences and needs.
