Pining away for another look at your favorite 140-character missives from years gone by? San Francisco-based microblogger monolith Twitter has just the cure for you.

According to Law.com's LegalBlogWatch, if you can't already, you'll soon be able to access Your Twitter Archive in the Settings section of your Twitter account. Click on the button and soon a zip file of all your tweets in html. format will be headed your way via Email from your favorite Santa @ Twitter. A similar zip file has been available to Twitter users in the European Union for some time, but has only recently been introduced in the States.

The motivation for poring over your brief bon mots is less nostalgic than it is litigious, according to the Law.com post, as the 140-character messages could be a treasure trove uncovered during the discovery phase of litigation. Presently, tracking down old tweets on the Twitter Web site is a cumbersome process.

So, this holiday season, tell the social media geek in your life about Your Twitter Archive and give him the chance to scroll down the tweets where he's lived.
