American computer programmer and video game developer John D. Carmack has urged social media users to not delete inactive accounts and their historic tweets.

According to him,  people know how many “active” followers they have is good information, but deleting the output of inactive accounts would be terrible.

Some people are of the view that deleting inactive social media accounts will let you see positivity entering your life since you will get time to do things you want.

Chase Sagum, CEO, Sagum said, “In my opinion if you’re not going to keep a social profile updated then why keep it at all? Unless that profile is for a brand that is very important to you of course such as your personal name or a company that you think will be around for a while. Otherwise…. Just trash it! No reason flooding the web with unused social media profiles”.

Sanket Patel, Owner of Blurbpoint Media, added that “Now a days, it becomes the need of every business to be involved with its customers through social media as it has become a vital network to do business communications. In my opinion, if you are not able to remain active on all the social media channels then its better to delete them as your absence creates a negative impact on the minds of your customers otherwise keep yourself updated and convey every information for your brand”.

But the co-founder of the video game company id Software, John Carmack in a tweet said “Some may scoff at any allusion between Twitter and ancient libraries, but while the burning of the library of Alexandria was a tragedy, scrolls and books that were tossed in the trash just because nobody wanted to keep them are kind of worse”.

“I may be reading this incorrectly, but if you are actually deleting inactive accounts and all their historic tweets, I would STRONGLY urge you to reconsider”.

“Letting people know how many “active” followers they have is good information, but deleting the output of inactive accounts would be terrible. I still see people liking ten year old tweets I made, but the threads are already often fragmented with deleted or unavailable tweets. Don’t make it worse”!
