There are several options for searching for a tweet, and the most effective ones are offered by sites other than Twitter. My First Tweet will find the first thing you said on Twitter. SnapBird will let you search tweets as well as @replies and Direct Messages. Google is another option, of course.
But then, the world extends beyond Twitter. SocialSearching lets you sift through Facebook as well.
Most of us have lost data and it's never fun. You can back up on another hard drive, but for real safety you want it off-site. Carbonite gives you unlimited backup for $59 per year. Remember the discount code GEEKBEAT when you enroll.
So, you found what you were looking for, now how do make sure it doesn't get lost forever? Backups, of course! My favorite is Backupify, which will backup Twitter, Facebook, Gmail, and more! Microsft MIX offers The Archivist, a service with analysis as well as backups.
