Twitter Is Deleting Inactive Accounts!
Are you a lurker on Twitter? Maybe you used your account in 2011 when Twitter blew up and you haven’t logged on since, well heads up! Your account could be deleted!
If you haven’t been active in the last six months your account may be deleted if you don't log in before December 11th. Say goodbye to your entire tweet history, your username, and anything cringe worthy you may have talked about in 2009. The initiative is an attempt to "clean up" the Twittersphere.

However, some are upset about the possibility of accounts being deleted that belong to people who have passed away.
Hi, @TwitterSupport, @Twitter. Do not delete inactive accounts of verified people. Some of these people are no longer with us (like our @ realjonghyun90)— ~call_me_maestro~ (@morowepowietrze) November 27, 2019
and a souvenir, such as a Twitter account, is one of the most beautiful memories for their fans.
Twitter is apparently looking into a memorial feature.
But this is good news if, like me, you have been waiting for a username.
