Elon said this would free up “name space” — dormant Twitter handles attached to the accounts.

Users often complain that inactive accounts have desirable handles snared in Twitter’s early days.

Twitter is preparing to delete 1.5 billion inactive accounts to free up dormant handles, or user names, on the platform, owner Elon Musk said Thursday.

Musk said the deletions would free up the “name space” of dormant accounts, adding that the accounts to be deleted were “obvious” because they had “no tweets” and “no log in for years.”

Some Twitter users have complained that inactive accounts have unusual and desirable handles that were snared in Twitter’s early days.

Musk has previously promised to remove inactive accounts from Twitter. In November, he said accounts that had been inactive for 15 years would be purged.
