Tweeters is an email listserv with more than 3,000 subscribers on the topic of birds and birding in Washington State and the Pacific Northwest. The email group began small in 1994 and has grown ever since.
The University of Washington informed Tweeters managers in early 2018 that its archive had exceeded the UW’s storage limits and that Tweeters needed to move most of the archive elsewhere. Tweeters managers asked WOS to host the archive of Tweeters messages for all but the most recent years. WOS agreed and now sponsors and pays for the archive of the more than 150,000 emails from 1994 through December 2017.
The Tweeters archive is consulted regularly not just by birders but also by land-use planners, biologists for various agencies and organizations, educators, journalists, and conservationists.
All emails from 2014 to the current postings will continue to be accessible at UW Tweeters emails 2014-Present.
