Initially, the social network will give priority to government accounts, those of companies, brands and non-profit organizations, journalists, VIPs, entertainment and sports personalities, activists and other influential individuals.

Following Facebook's example, Twitter will activate the function that allows the heirs of a deceased to manage the his profile by turning it into an account in his memory. In addition to these two novelties, the social network has decided to notify its users when a useful profile is managed by a bot and not by a real user. Whether it's a commemorative account or a bot managed account, Twitter will add a label that will identify them as such
