The Big Twitter Purge Is Here Shortly

TECH NEWS – The social media site with the bird as its logo, Twitter is going to start removing a few accounts soon.

We could say that Twitter is stepping its game up after disabling all political advertisements on the platform, but now, the microblog with its 280 characters limit is getting attention for a different reason. Starting December 11, they will start focusing (and later, removing) inactive accounts. By inactive, they mean the ones that have not seen a login in the past six months. While the deletion doesn’t start immediately, you should keep an eye on the situation.

You’ll get an email on the account you tied your Twitter account with a request to log in and follow the instructions on the screen if you want to keep the account. You don’t need to tweet, though. The reason behind this decision is to „present more accurate, credible information.” From Twitter (where else…?), we found a screenshot, which shows an example of what the email 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 your Twitter account @[handle name here]. But first, you need to log in and follow the on-screen prompts before Dec. 11, 2019, otherwise your account will be removed from Twitter.”

However, Twitter handles of deceased users could also face a shutdown. Some people keep their family member’s or friend’s account for sentimental reasons. Also, we have yet to see how people that have been permanently banned will be affected.

Twitter should allow the deceased handles’ relatives to keep the account with a few easy steps. Still, the site is getting cleared up, which should have happened before.
