the library of congress and twitter

big news! the library of congress has just decided it wants the entire archive of twitter. some preliminary questions posed:

Will the archive include friend/follower connection data? Will it be usable for commercial purposes? Will there be a Web interface for searching it, and will that change the face of Twitter search for good? Is there any way that the much larger archive of Facebook data could be submitted to the same body for analysis of the same kind?
