Twitter to delete accounts belonging to dead people

Social media giant Twitter has unveiled it’s recent plan to delete accounts belonging to dead people.


The social media giant Twitter said accounts belonging to dead people will not be removed as part of its ‘clean-up’ of inactive profiles until it figures out a way to memorialise these accounts.

The social network also started by warning users who have been inactive on its platform for more than six months that their account risks being deleted.

Some people expressed concern about losing accounts which belonged to someone who died.

In response, Twitter on Wednesday night said it will not be removing such accounts yet.

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,’ it said in a tweet.
