quick update: download your last 3200 tweets!!

Here’s a little script I found to download your last 3,200 tweets in one shot on a machine with curl installed.

curl -O -u username:password "https://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline.xml?count=100&page=[1-32]"

Replace username and password as necessary. If your password has a special character like an exclamation point or an ampersand, you’ll have to put a backslash (\) before it.

Twitter only allows you to retrieve your last 3,200 tweets, but that’s better than nothing; and really most of us probably don’t have that many yet….
