Another Bad Twitter Idea From Musk

Elon Musk tweeted out something I strongly disagree with yesterday.

It wasn't the first time he has written something I have taken issue with, but this one - to me - is on a totally different level.

The Twitter owner announced that the company is set to begin 'purging accounts that have had no activity at all for several years'.

I am sure there are many dormant accounts of people that have passed away. It makes sense that some of those accounts, even though they haven't been active for a while, exist as reminders to family, friends or mere followers of the deceased. 

It's a bad idea for that sole reason.
