    Will I (or someone) be able to easily find and access this tweet 10 years from now? 50 years? 100?

  3. @stop that tweet will be hard to find in 10 days, much less ten years. It's a major bummer

  4. @stop It'll be in the Library of Congress, right? Otherwise, not really. Data is almost transient on Twitter. (cc: @TimHaines @marshallk)

  5. @stop Related to that, I don't know how to find many of my documents/creations from 2+ years ago, unless they're in gmail.

  6. @TimHaines Amen, brother. So how are we, or our offspring, supposed to find the non-transient data many more years down the road?

  7. @stop @TimHaines How are we, as our parents' offspring, supposed to find their conversations and graduate school theses from many years ago?

  8. @mko @TimHaines Unless any of those made it into the public library system, or our parents used acid-free paper, we won't.

  9. @stop @TimHaines My "answer" is to safeguard data important to me using a cloud-based system and a relational db that can be queried easily.

  10. @mko @TimHaines And unless I go back & fav these tweets, or curate them somehow, this exact thread will nearly vanish within a few days.

  11. @stop The concern here is that Twitter is used for both highly serious and/or funny things as well as conversation. /@mko @TimHaines

    @stop @mko @TimHaines With a little effort, we can keep this conversation alive and documented for as long as we want. Not so in the past.
