All the top news from Twitter for the week in 140 characters or fewer. 

With hundreds of millions of tweets per day, it’s impossible to follow everything happening on Twitter. Every Friday, the Daily Dot rounds up notable Twitter news and stories from the past week—in 140 characters or fewer.

  • Twitter's making your tweet archive available to download. If you have access, you can use the new photo filters for extra nostalgia.

  • You're now tweeting alongside 200 million other people.

  • Twitter played hot potato at its boardroom this week, as it moved around some executives.

  • A man was arrested over an alleged threat to a journalist following a soccer documentary.

  • Religion is playing a larger role in Twitter culture, as the Pope's retweet rate outshines even Justin Bieber.

  • London Fire Brigade is preparing to answer emergency tweets.

  • The BBC's Robert Peston appealed for the return of his late wife's rings after a burglary.
  • An Australian politician was apparently too busy to read a sexual harassment court judgement, so someone's tweeting all 33,000 words to him.

The week's best new accounts: Safe Porn is probably not really safe for work, but it's kind of funny. Breaking Bad's Dean Norris had perhaps the greatest second tweet of anyone in history. And, believe it or not, @GIFs was only registered Tuesday.

Photo of the week: Deadmau5 proposed to Kat von D with a tweet. Teen Mom star Maci Bookout was less impressed with a proposal.
