Twitter "missed" that deceased people are deceased and not active users, backs off inactive account deletion.

I wonder how the planning meeting for this went. Let's delete inactive accounts. Why would an account be inactive? Because they don't want to use it anymore. Any other reasons? Nope. Ship it!

@tedu Why wouldn’t they remove “dead” accounts?

If I died I’d like my stuff to be deleted afterwards.

If the relatives want it saved; give them an offline copy of the profile 🤔

@erin same? I don't care enough to actively delete my account, but I wouldn't mind if it disappeared. Especially if I've disappeared too.
