|+# @holman tweets|
|+This is an archive of most of the tweets I've made from|
|+It isn't all of my tweets, though. Twitter's API limits mean you can only get|
|+3200 tweets back at a maximum, anytime, ever. So once you've gone past that|
|+3200th tweet, you can never ever see that tweet again, either via|
|+twitter.com or via any other third-party service.|
|+The reason Twitter does this is mostly because **Twitter does not give a fuck|
|+about your data**. That's unfortunate. [I wrote about this a year ago](http://zachholman.com/2010/09/hey-twitter-give-us-our-tweets/),|
|+although nothing has changed since then. Admittedly, it could be because Twitter|
|+doesn't give a fuck about your data, but it also could be because they couldn't|
|+ship themselves out of a UPS store, much less ship any interesting product in|
|+the last year.|
