X is reportedly selling inactive usernames for $50,000

The company is trying to find buyers for user handles it reclaimed from inactive accounts. It seems to be sending out solicitation emails asking for “a flat fee of $50,000 to initiate a purchase”, according to Forbes. X changed its policy this year to stipulate that users must log in every 30 days to remain active, and risk having their accounts suspended or permanently removed if they go long enough without signing on.

Google, Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom, Telefónica and Orange sent a letter to the European Commission asking it to designate Apple’s iMessage as a “core platform service”

If iMessage would be considered as “core” service, it would force Apple to make iMessage compatible with RCS like WhatsApp and Google Messages by March 2024. According to the Commission, Apple has previously argued that iMessage isn’t popular enough in the EU to warrant being designated as a core platform service.
