Since March, the deceased will be able to continue tweeting through LivesOn, a recently launched application. This app is based on the analysis of the history of each user of Twitter to keep feeding the social network profile with the issues and items that have been of interest to the deceased.”When your heart stops beating, you’ll still be tweeting” is the motto of the new application for the popular social network.”Welcome to your social life after death,” they also say.
A feature of the site is that users can appoint a LiveOn person as the executor of their will in the social network, so that they may decide to keep the account active or suspended.So far, the existing application only allows messages and updates previously programmed by the user. Another similar service, DeadSocial, offers a “digital legacy tool” for sending posthumously messages through Facebook and Twitter. LivesOn gives another step in the possibility of further activity in social networks even after death.The social network Twitter now has over 500 million users worldwide.
