How to Delete Twitter

Delete Twitter: What will be deleted?

By deleting your Twitter account, you’ll be erasing your profile, photos, posts, videos, and anything else that you’ve personally added to Twitter. You won’t be able to retrieve any of these things. Some information, like direct messages, might still be visible after you’ve deleted your account. After 30 days, you won’t be able to reactivate your account. You must do this within your Twitter account- only deleting the app will not delete your profile.

Twitter doesn’t have a separate procedure for deactivating and deleting your account. You must deactivate account, and then wait 30 days. After this, your account will go from just deactivated to fully deleted.

2. Click on your profile icon on the top right of the page. Click ‘Settings and privacy’.

3. Scroll all the way down in the ‘Account’ section of the page (this should be the default page that comes up in ‘Settings and privacy’). Click ‘Deactivate your account’.

How Long Until Your Profile is Deleted?

You have 30 days to fully commit to deleting your account. If you log back in within this timeframe, you will be able to retrieve your information. It won’t be accessible to other users during this time period.
