Twitter recently updated their inactive account policy, paving the way for their ability to 'reclaim' abandoned accounts that have been deemed inactive.
I'd like to take this opportunity to re-affirm Buttondown's policy on this subject:
Here's the thing: digital life is hard enough. You should not have to spend any time worrying about someone stealing your digital identity, nor any time worrying about a URL you visited in 2023 having vanished in 2025.
Buttondown is, more than anything, committed to making your life a tiny bit easier in a number of ways. We hope this policy is one of those infintesimal ways.
