In this day and age, it is not uncommon to find an individual with a Twitter account, however, if you haven’t logged into your Twitter account in the past six months, you might want to do so right away.
This is because Twitter recently announced that they will begin deleting inactive accounts by the 11th of December. As stated by Twitter, an inactive account is one that has not been logged onto in the past 6 months, so if you haven’t been active, and still want to keep your account and username on Twitter, you should do so before the 11th of December, 2019.
Failure to do so will result in your account being deleted and your username being put back into the pool of available usernames to choose from. According to Twitter,
”We encourage people to actively log in and use Twitter when they register an account. To keep your account active, be sure to log in and Tweet at least every 6 months. Accounts may be permanently removed due to prolonged inactivity.”
The upside to this purge is that if you’ve been meaning to change your username, there is a slight chance that following this purge, you might be able to finally get the username of your dreams. However, it remains unknown as to how Twitter will proceed with the accounts of its deceased users, but we will keep our eyes peeled for more information.
