If it was a public tweet, now it's a matter of public record:

Twitter Donates Entire Tweet Archive to Library of Congress

Hope that Twitter had something about this in their ToS. Then again, none of us should consider our data, on someone else's servers, fully our own property anymore.

Edit My coworker's comment, when I mentioned this to her, had me ROTFLMAO:
That would be like me donating used cat litter.

I can't find it in myself to disagree with her.

I figured that if it was a public tweet, it was already available to search engines, content aggregators, and so on. As soon as it’s visible on the Net, it might be there permanently. Cc’ing the Library of Congress doesn’t change that. There are all kinds of public venues that we are used to thinking of as effectively private where we need to get used to the notion that they never were really private; they were just harder to see into before.

Not every tweet is crap.

There are a lot of useful things tweeted.

I find the best rule for Twitter and FB is to never, ever, ever put anything controversial or private out there.
