Tweet Nest is a browsable, searchable and easily customizable archive and backup for your tweets, made in PHP. It runs on a web server.
It requires the following:
- PHP 5.2 or higher with cURL enabled (or 5.1 with the PECL JSON module installed in addition)
- MySQL 4.1 or higher
To figure out how to install it, please point your browser to:
And go to the "Installation" section.

- Place your downloaded json archive files (data/js/tweets/[year]_[month].js) directly in the archive folder (archive/[year]_[month].js)
- On new tweet nest setups:
- follow the tweet nest instructions from http://pongsocket.com/tweetnest/#installation
- right after the maintenance/loaduser.php step, run maintenance/loadarchive.php
- On existing instances:
- be sure not to overwrite your inc/config.php or you will have to setup your instance again
- run upgrade.php
- run maintenance/loadarchive.php
The importer keeps track of its progress in maintenance/loadarchivelog.txt if it's writable. Should the script die for some reason (php time limit e.g.), just run it again.
If you have a large archive (10k+ tweets), I would recommend to do the one-time import via cli (php -f maintenance/loadarchive.php)
