Twitter announced recently that it would be deleting any inactive accounts that had not been used in the last six month, it has now decided to put these plans on hold for a while.
The reason Twitter has decided to pause the deleting of the accounts as there is an issue with what to do with accounts of people who are deceased.
If Twitter had gone ahead and deleted all inactive accounts, this would also included accounts of people who ate no longer here.
The company has now decided that it will work on a way to ‘memorialize’ accounts of deceased people, this means that these people’s content can then be saved rather than just being deleted.
When the announcement was revealed by Twitter the issue of deceased people’s accounts was raised and this is not something Twitter had taken into consideration so this sis why they have decided to pause the deletion of the accounts.
