After Tesla founder Musk acquired and took over Twitter, he carried out major reforms. In addition to laying off employees to reduce costs, he also successively resorted to various rectification measures for the platform. Musk recently announced that Twitter will delete 1.5 billion accounts.

Musk said Twitter would delete 1.5 billion inactive accounts, freeing up those usernames for others.

He added that the accounts had not been logged in or posted for years.

Twitter has not officially announced the relevant details and how to delete accounts, but according to Twitter's existing rules of use, if it is an account that has not been logged in for more than 6 months, the official has the right to delete it.

Once these accounts are deleted, the previously registered IDs will be released again.

However, the new measures caused polarized reactions from netizens. Some netizens expressed dissatisfaction. Some Twitter account owners passed away, and his relatives and friends deliberately kept his account as a memorial.

In 2019, Twitter caused a storm due to the deletion of accounts. At that time, the official clarified that Twitter would use the method of "commemorating accounts", but it has not yet been officially implemented.

Other social platforms, such as Facebook, have a commemorative account function, and users can set their own "commemorative account proxy" during their lifetime.

Twitter will soon start freeing the name space of 1.5 billion accounts
