But other than that there are ways to get back all those old tweets. And we have them here just for you:
1. Twitter Settings

Pretty simple eh?
Tweet Library is an advanced Twitter app with archiving, collections, and filters. This app is designed for both iPhone and iPad and goes for a whopping $4.99
This is a free tweet archive service, structured around searches. First you do a search—using Twitter’s own search syntax (from:yourusername, for example). It will then return a list of matching tweets, along with a slew of analytics (volume, word frequency, and so on). (Your first search will return a maximum of 500 matching tweets.) You can then save that search (which will continue to be updated until you delete it) or share it.
Backupify lets you back up all of your social media accounts: Twitter, Facebook, Picasa, Gmail, as well as others. A free account has a limit of 1 GB of storage; if you just want to archive your tweets, at 140 characters each, that should last your lifetime. Paid accounts offer more storage and more frequent backups.
ThinkUp is a free, open source web application that captures all your activity on social networks like Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and Foursquare. The information gets stored on your own server.
Tweet Keeper retrieves the most recent 3200 tweets and then adds new tweets to the existing archive. Save your own tweets, and anyone else’s you find of interest, up to eight accounts total. The app goes for $1.99.
