I really think it’s time to look over your policies regarding inactive accounts. I’m a singer/songwriter/recording artist and have been trying to get a certain twitter handle to no avail. The name is already taken but the account hasn’t tweeted in nearly a year. I also tried different variations of the name and those were taken as well. Some of those had not tweeted but once since 2009! They are abandoned. Some of the websites and companies they represent no longer even exist.
This is really frustrating for me when I would really like a name to reflect my music and so my fans can follow me and find me easier. Please consider taking a look at your inactive account policies. It’s really important to help other people’s business and communities grow.
