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.
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.
