Recently Twitter announced about deleting the inactive accounts left by its owners for more than 6 months. The social media started to sent notifications with this statement to the users this week.
But in a few days, Twitter recalled this cleanup campaign. And until the service finds another way to save accounts which are not active any more but frequented or contains meaningful information for other users.
"We've heard you on the impact that this would have on the accounts of the deceased," Twitter said. "This was a miss on our part. We will not be removing any inactive accounts until we create a new way for people to memorialize accounts."
The company made an apology to users for the misunderstanding, affirming to present an alternative way for the particular category of inactive accounts.
Twitter explained the purpose of this sorting is to clear the space for accurate and reliable content on the platform.
