Inactive Twitter accounts will be archived after 30 days.
Twitter will now remove and archive dormant accounts.
We’re removing accounts that have had no activity at all for several years, so you will probably see follower count reduce’, tweeted Twitter CEO Elon Musk.
Twitter made a similar announcement in December 2022, deleting over 1.5 billion inactive accounts to sell their unique usernames during a crisis.
Musk announced that Twitter will erase any dormant accounts that follow them, causing a large decline in follower counts.
Twitter’s main website now requires users to sign in at least once every 30 days to avoid account deletion due to inactivity.
Musk, who took over the microblogging platform last year, seems serious about making it more active.
The CEO recently “threatened” National Public Radio, an American media organisation, to tweet on its Twitter account before selling it. In protest of a “government involvement” classification, the media organisation stopped tweeting.
Will deleting all inactive users make Twitter more active and entertaining or irritate followers obsessive with their count? Is it worth it? Leave your thoughts below.
