Want to be part of the historical record officially?  You will be if you’ve published a public tweet on Twitter since March 2006, because your tweets are going into the Library of Congress archives.

You might not be able to edit those old tweets, but it’s as good a time as any to make sure your future tweets are good.  They’ll be available through the Library of Congress, after all.

The announcement began to travel quickly across Twitter and the social Web this morning when the Library of Congress published the tweet shown below.

The Library of Congress is the largest library in the world and adding the complete public Twitter archive to its digital assets will undoubtedly spawn a lot of research in a wide variety of areas of study.
