On 15 July 2020, the BBC announced that they "would close most of [BBC News'] social accounts to focus on core services like @bbcnews, @bbcworld and @bbcbreaking".

Currently the timescale and scope of the purge is unknown. It is believed that this only affects BBC News social media accounts, not other non-News BBC accounts.
