I'm looking to view and archive all my old DMs in Twitter, since I would like to revive conversations that took place 1 year ago.

Acording to Twitter they don't delete old messages, they simply archive them in their database.

Is there a way to view and download all of these messages, just like you can view all your old public tweets with third party apps?

UPDATE: I found http://snapbird.org/ but apparently it's not working for DMs now

Downloading your Twitter archive allows you to browse a snapshot of your Twitter information, starting with your first Tweet. Behind link there is Twitter help page which explains how in 5 steps, step by step, request Twitter to create downloadable .zip archive of (quote) "your information from first twit". Since it might take time, they promise send you a link by email after task is finished.

Could you edit in a (brief) summary of what's at the link so the answer can be self-contained, please? – jonsca Oct 22 '14 at 20:17
expanded summary to meet your request. – silpol Oct 23 '14 at 13:39
Thank you for doing so. – jonsca Oct 23 '14 at 20:59
Does anyone has done it? does it contain DM and how long has it taken? – Juh_ Sep 23 '15 at 12:18
