[Air-L] More on access to Twitter via the US Library of Congress

I received similar information from the contact I've made over in LoC, but a
few more bits that might be useful (forgive me if it's repetitive). They are
hoping to make data available remotely (so that researchers do not have to
come to the LoC to gain access to data sets). They are also hoping to be
able to transfer this data to researchers, so they are working through the
different formatting issues. Yes, they are receiving the entire archive back
to 2006. However, they will not receive any tweets newer than 6 months.

I'm hoping to continue conversations to see what other answers I can find
for us.

Take care,
Liza
