Elon Musk declares that Twitter has deleted all dormant profiles

Ahmed Moawad - | Technology

Elon Musk recently said that Twitter would begin deleting dormant and abandoned accounts, a move that has been met with widespread backlash online. Some users have expressed concern that they will no longer have access to the accounts of departed loved ones.

After Musk bought Twitter in October, he made the following statement: "It is important that we get rid of neglected accounts." Musk has recently signalled that he prefers to archive dormant Twitter accounts rather than erase them altogether.

"We will be purge accounts that have not had any activity for the past several years, so they are likely to see a decrease in the number of followers," the billionaire, who is the most famous person in the world at the moment and the owner of the "Twitter" social networking site, stated in a tweet.

In light of the recent announcement from the "Twitter" platform, the process of removing inactive accounts may also help Musk achieve his goal of increasing Twitter's revenues. This is especially true in light of a January 2018 New York Times report that Twitter was considering selling usernames to generate new revenue.

Elon Musk is revamping his Twitter account

The billionaire's purchase of Twitter was met with widespread backlash due to his controversial reforms, such as the "authentication" programme that requires users to pay as little as $8 per month to gain access to the blue verification checkmark.

Elon Musk has stated that the new method will soon begin freeing up namespace for around 1.5 billion users by deleting inactive accounts.
