Next time you tweet, you may want to consider your role in history. The Library of Congress plans to archive all public posts from Twitter, dating back to the 2006 debut of the popular social networking service. Details on tweet availability will be worked out within the next several months, according to Matt Raymond, director of communications for the Library of Congress. Although some posts will be accessible online at the Library's Web site, you'll need to travel to Washington, D.C., to access the bulk of the billions of tweets.

Interestingly, Saffron Technology announced a demo application today called TweetDive, which uses associative memory technology to makes sense of what's really in Twitter streams about a given subject.
