Twitter Plans to Memorialize the Accounts of its Deceased Users – Puts it latest plan on hold

By Posted Nov 29, 2019 in Social Media News/ Twitter

Twitter recently announced that it will start deleting accounts that have not been active for over six months, effective by December 11th.

In a statement to TechCrunch, the company said:

“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.”

But this move got some serious backlash from users because it will also affect accounts from users who have passed away. And that would be emotionally taxing for their loved ones who visited those accounts to keep their memories fresh.

And after the quick response from Twitter, it got pretty clear that Twitter simply hadn’t considered this aspect of the policy. So, for now, Twitter has put this policy on hold and decided to formulize a way to memorialize the accounts of deceased users.

“We’ve heard you on the impact that this would have on the accounts of the deceased. This was a miss on our part. We will not be removing any inactive accounts until we create a new way for people to memorialize accounts.”

Facebook also has a way to memorialize the accounts of your deceased loved ones, and now Twitter will soon follow suit.

Twitter has always had the policy to delete inactive accounts but it has never been seriously implemented. Now that Twitter was finally serious to do that, this hiccup has caused a setback. But, Twitter is determined to delete the inactive accounts once it figures out a way to memorialize the accounts of deceased users. And that will clear up a lot of usernames for new Twitter users.
