It’s a shame how it’s pretty much impossible to check older entries on microblogging services. I use twitter and plurk, and every now and then i’d like to check my or someone else’s older entries. Right now i’d be interested about what all those tweeties going on so much nowadays about the riots and general unrest in the middle east wrote when there were riots in Europe (Britain, France, Hungary…). But manually scrolling back thousands of entries only to go back months in the archive? No thanks.
