Hold up on That Whole Twitter Deleting Inactive Accounts

Posted on the 27 November 2019 by Worldwide @thedomains

Yesterday Twitter announced they would be deleting inactive accounts. Today they said no so fast.

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).

Beyond complying with GDPR, we may broaden the enforcement of our inactivity policy in the future to comply with other regulations around the world and to ensure the integrity of the service. We will communicate with all of you if we do.

So it turns out that this was really going to be EU centric on the deleting of accounts and now they need to come up with a plan to memorialize accounts before they will even start the process of deleting inactive accounts.
