Yay! Updated the code and now it's working again. Thanks! One little question: I'm a fool at programming, so where can I change the text "This is an offline archive of your Tweets from Twitter. Use the months above to navigate the archive." - is it even possible, or does it come direct from the tweet archive?

drikkes commented Jan 24, 2014

Ah, found it in the index of the tweets-folder. But how to change it? There's no script editor? Do I have to download the file, change it, and upload it again? Sorry for bothering you, but I'm a real coding idiot and don't want to break anything.
