Twitter will now delete all the inactive accounts!

-

Those of you who are using any social media network know how much of a pain it is to get the username of your choice. Whether it be Twitter, Instagram, or snap chat, there is a high chance that someone’s already using the name which you wanted for yourself.

It’s not that much of a problem, but it comes under the personal preferences of the user. The main problem is that if the person hogging your username is inactive on that social media platform.

Taking twitter into consideration, there are 974 million existing Twitter accounts, a number that seems at first to rival Facebook’s popularity. However, most of these users are inactive according to discovery from the analytics firm Twopcharts that were investigated in The Wall Street Journal Monday.

For tackling this problem, Twitter has now implemented an inactive account policy in which it can permanently delete those twitter accounts, which has been inactive for at least six months. Before permanently removing the account, it will send a warning to the user that there account will be terminated if they will continue to be inactive on the social media platform.

Following is the email sent by Twitter to TechCrunch regarding this inactive account policy-

As part of our commitment to serve the public conversation, 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 and use Twitter when they register an account, as stated in our Inactive Accounts Policy. 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.

Well, we welcome this decision by Twitter as it will help all the new creators or business people who can get started on Twitter with their preferred username. This will help in presenting more accurate and credible information.
