Because Twitter wants to mine your data even harder, and needs you to consent to it, Twitter is about to prune any account that hasn't signed-on in the past 6 months. (Because they haven't consented to get datamined quite as hard)
This would include anybody who's died, and archives, like @POTUS44@twitter.com, an archive of every Tweet from President Obama while he was in office.
**This is why third-party archives are important**
This would also include:
* Incarcerated persons
* Deployed members of the armed forces
* Comatose people
unless they can get someone to log in and accept the new ToS on their behalf.
And you can only imagine what clause they added to their ToS that they're so hurried to ensure applies to their entire userbase, even people who may have died.
