    Do you guys ever think Twitter will purge all the amazing 1 word usernames that are unavailable. Some accounts are over 5+ years old with no activity.

    it happened in 2009, not sure when it will happen again, and twitter doesn't reveal that either, so i'm keeping an eye out to grab some few :D good luck to you too

    Thanks for the responses the best thing we can do is just wait I assume.. I'm sure someone out there has a Bot that will probably steal them all from us and remain inactive like before smh

    Sent them a request to grant me a username from some dude who hasn't posted in over a year, has 2 followers and 1 tweet. That's was Friday, doubt they'll grant me the name sadly.
