This is not suited for this forum but I was wondering if anyone else had succeeded in obtaining an inactive Twitter account?
I’ve contacted numerous people. Including a few Twitter employees where one said they would snag it for me but never did in the end and the other had no idea how to go about it.
The particular handle I’ve been trying to obtain has been inactive for 4 years now and I’ve had no luck trying to contact the person.
Any ideas?# October 22, 2012 at 10:41 am
Seems that Twitter doesn’t follow their own [Terms](https://support.twitter.com/articles/15362-inactive-account-policy “”) of inactivity as I was just denied for requesting a username. Now I’ve asked if I should claim copyright infringement as I own a domain that resembles the username.# October 22, 2012 at 10:45 pm
Can you do that with a phone that was used via text message for Twitter? I believe this was my old account when I first signed up but they won’t work with me to determine this for “security reasons”.
My only other option is to try to claim impersonation as I have a domain that closely resembles the username. Actually I have two to better help my chances.
