Nerd Research Minute – Library of Congress to Cease Continual Tweet Archiving

Assign it the hashtag of #bahbye, Mediate reports that “Even the Library of Congress can’t keep up with Twitter anymore. The Library of Congress has been archiving every single public tweet for many years. But now it’s announced the process for archiving tweets will be more limited starting in 2018.” (Source: Mediaite)

The Library of Congress says that going forward, “Generally, the tweets collected and archived will be thematic and event-based, including events such as elections, or themes of ongoing national interest, e.g. public policy.” (Source: Deadline)

Weekend Ed. Quote ~December 16

This week’s Ed. Quote is in honor of my creative daughter, on her birthday!

“Electricity is not only present in a magnificent thunderstorm
and dazzling lightning, but also in a lamp; so also, creativity
exists not only where it creates great historical works,
but also everywhere human imagination combines, changes,
and creates anything new.”
~Lev Vygotsky, 1930/1967, cited in Smolucha, 1992, p. 54
