Twitter starts closing dormant accounts and gets a "backlash" (seems to be one person) where one account is someone who has died.
So now they're going to start hosting dead people's accounts which it turns out Facebook already does.
How far do they intend taking this? In thirty years they could find out that dead users outnumber live ones; will they then keep them rolling like some massive virtual graveyard?
What would be the point and, more pertinently for them, where is the profit?

I have various free webmail accounts which google and the other feckers are making generally worse, wanting more info like phone numbers to authenticate, less compatible with mail clients, have ridiculous user interfaces etc. I am prepared to go through the ballache of migrating to another service and to pay within reason but would like something that is likely to retain the same address long term as I use it for small business as well as personal. Maybe a 'junk' one for online purchasing and a 'proper' one for actual correspondence. My parents are reaching the age where power of attorney is on the horizon and have unreliable bt email so maybe buying a family domain name and running email from that is worth a look. What say the dosbods tech experts?
