Twitter will begin mass deleting inactive accounts, freeing up many usernames

Elon Musk after taking over the social network Twitter leaves no stone unturned. The next step should be a large deletion of inactive user accounts. This should free up a lot of usernames that a lot of people want, but are blocked by users who don’t use their Twitter account anyway. According to Musk, these should be accounts that have been inactive for several years, while warning that many users may see a drop in followers because of this. But that doesn’t really matter, because an inactive follower isn’t really a follower, it just falsely increases the number. This may flatter some, but it is probably better to know how many real followers there are than fictitious ones.

But this was understandably met with great resentment. Many argue that the accounts of many people who have died, for example, will disappear, along with many important tweets and their memory. Therefore, Elon Musk subsequently responded by saying that it will not be a direct matter of deleting these accounts, but of archiving them, however, with the fact that those usernames will be released. But the question is what happens to the links to these tweets when the usernames and therefore the URLs to them change. According to Musk, 1.5 billion usernames could be released this way.
