Be Careful What You Tweet: You Can Now Search for Every Tweet in History

ImageI won’t say I told you so.

But, according to Mashable, it’s now possible to search for any historical Tweet.

That’s right.  The Tweet you accidentally sent while at happy hour with some friends about how much you wanted to quit your job.  That Tweet about your mother-in-law sent after too many servings of Thanksgiving turkey.  That picture your teen took that made her look 20 years older and sent to the Twitterverse.

So, I won’t say I told you so.  I will say: be careful what you Tweet.  Everything we post online is a reflection of our values.  It’s permanent.  Nothing is anonymous anymore.

And, if you’re nervous, take a deep breath.  There are some 450 million Tweets created every day.  Searching it will be difficult, just not impossible!
