Twitter Wants to Auction Most Searched Usernames
According to the New York Times, Twitter plans to auction the most searched usernames. However, the plans are not very concrete yet.
Earlier, owner Elon Musk already announced that Twitter would deactivate inactive usernames. But in the case of famous people and brand names, the company can make money from that.
Details are still pending for now. However, it may be considered which usernames may and may not be sold in the coming months.
At the same time, the sale of usernames also opens the door to legal problems. If someone takes a company name or the name of a public figure and then misuses it. Depending on the application, a company or public figure could also take legal action against this.
