Looks as though tens of thousands of usernames are about to become available for the taking in about a month, according to the tech giant.
Twitter said it will delete the accounts of inactive Twitter users next month, making some desirable handles free for the taking.
The Verge reports that Twitter will deactivate the accounts on December 11 and the move will only affect users who haven’t signed in at all in the past six months.
The platform has already started to email users to notify them that their account is at risk of being deleted.
‘As part of our commitment to serve the public conversation, we’re working to clean up inactive accounts to present more accurate, credible information people can trust across Twitter. Part of this effort is encouraging people to actively log-in and use Twitter when they register an account, as stated in our inactive accounts policy,’ a spokesperson told The Verge.
In order to prevent one’s account from being deleted, all a user must do is log into their account.
