CALIFORNIA: Twitter, a popular networking site, is making preparations to delete accounts that have been inactive for more than six months, unless they log in before an 11 December deadline.
The cull will include users who stopped posting to the site because of their death – unless someone with that person’s account details is able to log-in.
This is first time Twitter has taken decision to remove inactive accounts on such a large scale, which, the firm claims, would improve credibility.
The site said it was because users who do not log-in were unable to agree to its updated privacy policies.
The first batch of deleted accounts will involve those registered outside of the US.
