Twapper Keeper is an online tool which archives tweets based on a given hashtag. Once you set up a query, Twapper Keeper will periodically scan Twitter for that tag and then archive the tweets it finds on its own servers.

Once archived, you can then organize the tweets into categories of your choosing which show up on the right-hand side of the archived page.
