New and Improved Archives

Apologies for the delays in archiving and updating things here, but archiving Twitter has been a challenge recently.

There are sort of inaccessible archives here at Archivist, but you can't search or (seemingly) go back in time to look at old tweets. Boo.

Because it was such a big deal, here is the archive of the chat that took place between #ENGchat and #FYCchat. It's in Storify, which I love, but it's a little too labor intensive for me to do every week, especially since after the chat on Wednesday nights, I hit a wall.

But thanks to Mark Sample (who is the expert on these things), I am now in possession of a great little Google Doc script that archives tweets in Google Docs. Seriously. And so, without further ado...

Here, in all of it's full spreadsheet glory, are the archives from the chat on March 28th. Wait, did I say just the chat? I meant, it's an archive of the full week of #FYCchat tweets. They're there. Just look.

I didn't say it was perfect. I'll work out the kinks, but folks, we have an archive again.
