Plan to break up with your significant other? Don’t do it by Twitter.

From here on out, every 140-character or less message you create will be housed for posterity at the Library of Congress. In partnership with Twitter, the library has already preserved¬†about 170 billion public tweets. This encompasses every public tweet from Twitter’s launch in 2006 through 2010.
