Twitter announces it will delete unused accounts

Written by on December 26, 2019

Social media giant Twitter announced that it will delete the accounts of those users who haven’t logged in for at least six months. 

The move won’t affect those who spend some time on the platform but don’t tweet too much.

“We’re working to clean up inactive accounts to present more accurate, credible information people can trust across Twitter. . Part of this effort is encouraging people to actively log in ” a Twitter spokesperson said.

According to policy guidelines outlined on its website, the company defines activity by logging in and even recognizes that “not all signs of account activity are publicly visible.”

Twitter pointed out it is reaching out to “many accounts” that somehow don’t meet the company’s requirements, but didn’t provide a timeline or an estimate of the number it considers to be inactive.

To this point, it remains unclear how the company will deal with an account that is inactive if the user died. 

A spokesperson said that the social media giant doesn’t currently have a way “to memorialize someone’s Twitter account once they have passed on, however the team is thinking about ways to do this.”
