Social media platform says it creates a way to memorize accounts first
Twitter has announced that it will halt its initiative to remove inactive accounts after users expressed concerns that the profiles of their dead loved ones would be removed.
Twitter revealed on Wednesday that all accounts that have been inactive for the past six months would be removed from the site, which would include those of deceased users.
Like Facebook, there is currently no way on Twitter for users to remember the accounts of those who have died.
After the announcement, many people pleaded with the site to keep the accounts open, so as not to erase the deceased’s digital footprints.
In response to the feedback, Twitter announced that its original decision was a “miss” and that it will not remove any inactive accounts until it creates a way for people to memorize them.

“We’ve heard you on the impact that this would have on the accounts of the deceased,” “This was a miss on our part. The social media platform tweeted.
“We won’t remove any inactive accounts until we create a new way for people to memorialise accounts.”
The company said it could “broaden the enforcement of our inactivity policy in the future” in follow-up tweets but will “communicate with all of you if we do”.
The announcement was concluded by Twitter apologizing for the fear it caused.
“We apologise for the confusion and concerns we caused and will keep you posted,” said the site.
The gesture was observed on the site with gratitude where people thanked the company for listening to users ‘ complaints.
“Thank you so much, this is greatly appreciated,” one user wrote.
