Twitter Archive Email Never Arrives
When you request your Twitter Archive sometimes the email never arrives. This is frustrating because the button to request that they resend the archive usually remains disabled for a number of days.
Turn off ‘Email Notifications’ so that ‘Email is Disabled’
If you aren’t receiving your Twitter archive, try turning off this setting first. It’s a strange Twitter bug that has been around for several years but hasn’t been fixed.
If the Request your archive button is greyed out then it is in a disabled state and will probably remain that way for at least 24 hours. Try back again a day or two later and re-request your archive.
Once you’ve finally received your Twitter Archive email then you can go back to:
and Turn on ‘Email Notifications’ so that ‘Email is Enabled’ again.
