Politwoops is the only comprehensive collection of deleted tweets by politicians that offers a window into what they hoped you did not see.

New CEO Jack Dorsey in October last year spoke about Twitter's responsibilities to developers and users in the areas of government transparency.'We have a responsibility to continue to empower organisations that bring more transparency to public dialogue, such as Politwoops,' he reiterated.

In a latest post on Thursday, Colin Crowell, vice president for global public policy at Twitter, wrote that the company is pleased to announce an agreement with the Sunlight Foundation and the Open State Foundation around Politwoops.

Politwoops is supposed to be accessible in the 'coming days and weeks', according to the watchdog group the Sunlight Foundation."Politwoops is an important tool for holding our public officials, including candidates and elected or appointed public officials, accountable for the statements they make. We are glad that we have been able to reach an agreement with Twitter to bring it back online both in the US and internationally," said Jenn Topper, communications director for the Sunlight Foundation.
