Twitter Opens Up Tweet History to Searchers

Rate this Entry
In a controversial move, Twitter has opened up their database for marketers to search up to 2 years of Twitter history. Marketing companies likely see opportunity at all that data, while privacy concerns are sure to arise from the privacy watch dog sites. Keep in mind, unless your Twitter account is locked as private, your tweets are and always have been public.

You may then want to get patient... real patient as they have over 1,000 anxious, licking-their-chops companies waiting to use their service. "
