Make downloading the Twitter archive data available
Users were able to download their archives for years (https://help.twitter.com/en/managing-your-account/how-to-download-your-twitter-archive), but this feature was disabled after the Twitter security incident in July.
Users now get the messages: "The download your data feature is unavailable right now. Try again at a later date."
Please re-enable this feature again as it's extremely useful for many users to access their account history and clean up their accounts.
Its still not working. I havent receive any in-app notification nor email.
I already clicked the download archive and says "Archive downloaded" but no one has been downloaded. Its been 2 weeks and i need my data. This coming October 4 is the expiration of my archive. i need it now asap
This is not a developer platform / API issue, but it was disabled for a short while during July and August; it is now available again. Closing this topic.

It's working again now. Download it here: https://twitter.com/settings/your_twitter_data
The idea I was suggesting and which was apparently deleted by admin, was to be able to retrieve it by API (instead of by a zip archive to download from the app).
I am in California and as of 7/1/2020 it is legally required for them to make this available. I'm actually calling the state to complain as Support has given me no response and they're breaking the law of the state they're based in. I'm wondering if these two things are connected since this didn't happen until that law went into effect but they've had half a year to get ready for it so...

Twitter support doesn't reply back.
