If you’ve ever spent time looking for a long lost tweet and have gotten frustrated by the short window that tweets are indexed by Twitter Search, then check out Snapbird from Remy Sharp of jQuery for Designers fame.

Snapbird lets you search someone’s timeline, favorites, or your own direct messages without the 7 day Twitter Search restriction. It even lets you permalink favorite queries.

Snapbird also uses Twitterlib, Remy’s JavaScript Twitter API wrapper.

Snapbird is open source so you can either use the hosted version or fork the project and run your own.
