Yesterday Twitter reports of deleting those accounts that are inactive for over 6 months. The action will be taken off on 11th December but now the company has decided to postpone this plan due to concern about what would happen to the deceased user accounts.
Tweet Made By Twitter Support:
This impacts accounts in the EU only, for now. We’ve always had an inactive account policy but we haven’t enforced it consistently. We’re starting with the EU in part due to local privacy regulations (eg, GDPR).

- It is totally unclear and unsaid from the company about what will be the last timeline for removing inactive accounts.
- According to the company, there is always been an inactive account policy but never been enforced thoroughly.
- The company may increase the scope of the enforcement of this policy in the future to comply with other regulations around the world.
It is been stated by the platform that the serious enforcement of inactive account policy will begin from the EU first then around the globe.
