What format does twitter use to strore tweets in their MySQL database?


I just got curious about using the APIs.
I know that I can use queries to receive the tweets using APIs.
Those tweets come in as Json format.
However, does anybody know the original format Twitter use to store tweets in their database?
WIll it be the JSon format or just the text format; or something totally different?

Please help.


Yes, twitter store data in JSON format.
