Twitter is backtracking

A few days ago we reported that Twitter is slated to delete accounts which have been inactive for more than six months starting December 11.

As it turns out, they're shelving this until they find a way to memorialise users who have passed away.

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

As you might know, Facebook has a way of memorialising user accounts of those who passed away and requesting for memorialisation is pretty simple - a relative only has to report to Facebook that the owner of a Facebook account has indeed deceased, and send a scanned copy of the death certificate.

    Twitter will have to purge lots of accounts if they actually decide to do so.

    Social Media has become so important, that actually people require something as an alternative. But this is surely not going to be simple. Lets see what best Twitter can find to memorialize people.
