Netizens React After Twitter Purge



Users on popular social media platform Twitter earlier today experienced significant reduction in their follower counts after the platform performed a purge.

Users have also reported being locked out of their accounts and or being suspended. It is unclear whether the purge is related to Twitters earlier announcement to delete inactive accounts.

Twitter had earlier announced that They would delete accounts which had been inactive for more than six months, Twitter then announced they had decided to halt the process due to customer feedback. Users wanted to be able to memorialize old accounts of friends, partners, family members, celebrities, and other influential Twitter users who’ve died.

However, Twitter Support clarified that they had an inactive account policy that needed to be implemented. “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).”

Here’s a couple of tweets of Netizens reacting to the purge;
