Twitter to remove inactive accounts, Twitter News

Twitter said that it will permanently delete the accounts that have not been logged-in for 6 months or more. This process of deleting the accounts will start from the 11th of December. The decision will not hold any exceptions as of now, and will delete the accounts of people who have deceased.

Yesterday while talking with The Verge, Twitter said, the reason why the company is taking such a step is to continue offering its users with accurate, and credible information that people can trust. Twitter is committed to serve the public conversations company added.

Twitter said that the company has already 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’. According to the company, this will also encourage its users to log-in and use Twitter and abide by the ‘Inactive Accounts Policy’ of the company.

All the accounts that have not been signed-in since at least 6 months will receive an alert for the micro-blogging platform, Twitter, asking them to log-in and accept their new ‘Privacy Policy’ before the 11th of December or else the account will be removed from the database.

Unlike Facebook, Twitter does not have a ‘Memorialisation’ feature that holds the account with barring from any new interactions of the user who has been deceased.

According to a Twitter’s spokesperson, ‘we do not currently have a way to memorialize someone’s Twitter account once they have passed on, but the team is thinking about ways to do this’.

This means that if before 11th of December Twitter does not come up with a Facebook like feature of ‘memorialisation’, then accounts of people who are deceased will be removed from the platform. The only exception will be if someone has the profile credentials (Log-in Id and Password), then that person can log-in and accept Twitter’s updated Privacy Policy.
