Does this happen often? How often do you have to use your Twitter account or else it will get deleted for inactivity?

Twitter says they delete accounts after 6 months of activity, but do they actually enforce that strictly? If you posted once every 6 months would that protect you from having your account deleted?

Twitter is not strictly managed...

On one of my accounts, for exmple, I have been inactive, with the exception of contacting their support department, for the past year. My account is still active and I have yet to receive a response from their technical or customer support representatives. The bottom line is that their stated policies are not guaranteed to be followed.
