How large? Collected over what sort of time period? What sort of analysis are you looking to do on it?

Do you want tweets or just the social graph?

Library of Congress are due to released the archive gifted to them by Twitter but there has been no update on when this will happen since April 2010

You can get downloads of archived hashtagged tweets from the last several months from twapperkeeper.com if someone has set up a Twapperkeeper archive for that hashtag...

InfoChimps has a Twitter collection. You need to pay (lots of) money for some datasets, others are free. You may need to specify what exactly you need.

The Archivist by Microsoft used to be a good resource similar to twapperkeeper.com that allowed a .csv/.zip download of archives - see examples at http://archivist.visitmix.com/systim where some datasets have 500K+ tweets.

Just noticed however that the FAQ http://archivist.visitmix.com/about/faq for "Can I export an archive and get the tweets in the archive?" now states "No. The Twitter Terms of Service does not allow this." - FAQ: http://dev.twitter.com/pages/api_terms

Presumably this is the same for twapperkeeper.com?

We could all just start duplicating this Google Spreadsheet putting tweets in the cloud for further analysis. How should we divvy up who captures what ;)

If your interest is in the analysis of social structures, you may be interested in this set of Facebook friends data from Caltech

What about: http://ckan.net/package/twitter-social-graph-www2010

This is one of the few datasets that is free (and maybe even open) and still available online (e.g. this dataset which had content of tweets as well has been taken down http://snap.stanford.edu/data/twitter7.html)

What type did you want? I have some follower data but it isn't that old and mostly relates to Australian sport teams.

Can you post the link to your dataset?

(18 Jan '11, 08:43) rgrp ♦♦

You can just go ahead and make the dataset yourself. Use the twitter stream API and collect the tweets ( if tweets is what you want) . A few days of collection would be enough to do some stuff with. Try and do it on days like Egypt revolution, you would get many MORE tweets presumably.

And , the graph mentioned above also is still available and as far as my knowledge goes, its the only one as of now.
