    Someone asked me to make some software to find expired Twitter accounts. What is the value of these? All links are no follow and you don't inherit the followers from the account name as far as I understand. So what's the value of them?

    As I understand, expired Twitter account can give trust even if it is a no follow link.
    But, I never get anywhere with Twitter accounts (website doesn't rank better with expired twitter accounts).
    I used Expired Domains Finder (on seosoftwarenow.com) to find theses web2.0 expired stuff. Now I prefer expired over-blog or other blog services to get juicy links.

    Expired/deleted twitter accounts are valuable because some of them can be restored. I did it with a 145k real followers twitter account. It took 2 week but it worth it.

    They may have backlink profiles and links from other profiles that are still live that could drive traffic and help to re-build the account much quicker than a new account would be to build up.
