Twitter lets you see old tweets on your Android or iPhone (iOS) phone. The social network sends to your registered email a ZIP file to download the account content. That way, the user has access to your information, including the first tweet. After requesting the document, the person needs to wait a few days to receive the email with the download. In the test performed by dnetc, the file was made available after about an hour. The microblog also sends a notification to notify the submission. The download is available for one month.
Here's the walkthrough of how to download old tweets on your phone. The same procedure for devices with Android and iPhone (iOS). In this tutorial, a Samsung Galaxy J5 with Android 8 (O) was used.
