Twitter will delete inactive accounts and free up usernames in December

If you own a Twitter account and haven’t signed in for the last 6 months, check your inboxes. You most likely have received an email from Twitter saying your account is due for deletion by December 11th if you don’t sign in by then. Also, your username will be up for grabs come then.

For everyone who’s been looking at inactive accounts with cool Twitter handles and wondering if a time will ever come when you will own them, this could be your chance. However, according to a spokesman from Twitter who spoke with The Verge, the deletion process will be over months, not a day, and it remains unclear when usernames will be open for new users.

“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,” a spokesperson told The Verge by email.

People with bots, or just secondary accounts shouldn’t worry. These accounts won’t be affected if they stay active.

If you want to maintain an account you have, just log in and you’ll be safe. Which means everyone looking at certain usernames waiting to acquire them because they’re not seeing any tweets may be in for some disappointment, as all the owners need to do is a simple log in.
