From sharing thoughts to engaging in global conversations, our Twitter profiles serve as a testament to our digital interactions. But have you ever thought about what happens to your Twitter account when you die?

Twitter, recognizing the need to address this digital afterlife, offers a primary option for managing your account after death: Account Deactivation.

Account Deactivation

Twitter's policy allows a person authorized to act on the behalf of the estate or a verified immediate family member of the deceased to have an account deactivated. This ensures that your tweets and personal information are removed from Twitter, leaving no digital trace of your account.

Memorialization

Unlike other platforms, Twitter does not currently offer a memorialization option. Once an account is deactivated, it cannot be accessed or used to view past tweets.

While Twitter provides a way to manage your account after your death, it necessitates careful planning and communication with your loved ones. This is where Snug steps in.

At Snug, we believe in the importance of managing your digital legacy. Our platform helps you plan account deactivation after your demise. We ensure that your wishes are communicated clearly, thus reducing potential confusion and distress for your loved ones.

But Snug is more than just managing your Twitter afterlife. We provide a comprehensive approach to estate planning, helping you manage your digital assets, financial affairs, and end-of-life wishes on an easy-to-navigate and secure platform.

Our services include:

  1. Digital Estate Planning: We help you catalogue your digital footprint, including social media accounts, emails, and online banking, and decide what happens to them after your death.
  2. Document Storage: Store your important documents such as wills, trusts, and insurance policies in our secure platform.
  3. End-of-Life Planning: Record your wishes for funeral arrangements, organ donation, and other end-of-life decisions.

In our increasingly digital world, managing your online presence after death is as essential as any other end-of-life arrangement. With Snug, you can face this reality with confidence, ensuring that your digital legacy aligns with your wishes.

Snug is not just about planning for death; it's about celebrating life and ensuring that your legacy lives on, both in the hearts of your loved ones and in the digital world.
