Twitter archive available for a dozen more languages

Twitter had earlier this month supported another 12 languages as part of a global rollout of the archive facility

Twitter is offering archives of tweets in 12 more languages as part of a global rollout of the facility.

Users can now access their archives in Danish, Filipino, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Swedish, Thai, Turkish and Urdu, Twitter said in a message on Thursday.

Twitter introduced in December the facility for users to download an archive of their tweets and retweets going back to when they first started using the service. It said it was rolling out the feature slowly, starting with a small percentage of users whose language was set to English. It promised to make the archive feature available to all users around the world for all the languages it offers over the "coming weeks and months."

In early March, the service had added support for 12 more languages, including Dutch, Farsi, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Malay, Norwegian, Polish and Spanish.

With the Twitter archive, users can view tweets by month or search the archive for Twitter messages by words, phrases, hashtags or @usernames, the company said in December. "You can even engage with your old Tweets just as you would with current ones," it added.

The option to download the Twitter archive can be activated from Settings on Twitter, which has a "Request Your Archive" option. Users receive an email with instructions on how to access their archive when it is ready for download.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
