They even went out of their way in preserving everyone's Tweets for future generations.
Evolving and expanding social media has spurred the Library of Congress to limit its archiving of tweets. Instead, starting on January 1, the Library will be more selective about what tweets to preserve, a decision it explained in a white paper.
The Library regularly reviews its collections practices to account for environmental shifts, diversity of collections and topics, cost effectiveness, use of collections and other factors. "As a result of the review, the Library has determined that its initial Twitter collection will consist of a twelve-year snapshot of the beginning of one of social media's most important and transformative communication tools".
The Library of Congress also noted that many tweets include photos and video and that it has only been collectingtext, making some of its collection worthless.

Dr Faisal said that Kulbhushan Jadhav has admitted that RAW had given him task of conducting terrorist activities in Pakistan. Jadhav's family had a brief stop at the mission again before they headed to the airport to catch a flight to India via Dubai.
The move prompted considerable reaction-including on Twitter.
"Three priorities have guided the Library's work to provide access to the Twitter collection: respect the intent of the producers of the content; honor donor (Twitter) access requirements; and manage taxpayer-provided resources wisely", it explained. Not anytime soon. The tweets are embargoed for a still-undetermined period of time.
The library "now needs to decide which of all our tweets are a valuable record of events in public life", tweeted the consumer activist group Public Knowledge.
"In April, 2010, the Library of Congress and Twitter signed an agreement providing the Library the public tweet text from the company's inception through the date of the agreement, an archive of tweets from 2006 through April 2010".
Some Twitter users lamented the quality of the messaging platform and the impact of prolific tweeter Donald Trump.
One reason that the Library is stopping the comprehensive archive?
The intent has been to preserve the history of USA social media and how it's evolved. Generally, the tweets collected and archived will be thematic and event-based, including events such as elections, or themes of ongoing national interest, e.g. public policy.
