Inactive Twitter Accounts To Be Deleted Starting December


Twitter users should be getting their Twitter accounts active, as the social media network is going to be deleting inactive accounts starting from next month, December

In an email sent to The Verge, Twitter said that; “As part of our commitment to serving the public conversation, we’re working to clean up inactive accounts to present more accurate, credible information people can trust across Twitter.

“We have begun proactive outreach to many accounts who have not logged into Twitter in over six months to inform them that their accounts may be permanently removed due to prolonged inactivity.” The mail added.

The email sent out has a subject line of “Don’t lose access to @(username)”, and it further says, “Hello, To continue using Twitter, you’ll need to agree to the current Terms, Privacy Policy, and Cookie Use.”

This not only lets you make the best decisions about the information that you share with us, but it also allows you to keep using the Twitter account. But first, you need to log in and follow the on-screen prompts before Dec. 11, 22019, otherwise your twitter account will be removed from Twitter.”

The policy does not only affect those who abandoned their account but also accounts belonging to a dead person will also be affected.

However, Twitter has not responded to issues regarding what will happen to the regained usernames and when they will be made available.  Twitter spokesperson Ebony Turner, when asked said, the account removal process will take a long time to process, adding that it will take a while for it to happen.

Also, usernames with under five characters can no longer be registered on Twitter, so that’s another thing to consider when dreaming about switching to that username you’ve always wanted. So if you have not been active on Twitter, I bet that this is the right time to put it to use, or else, it will be deleted.
