How to Delete Twitter

Twitter doesn’t allow you to delete your account outright; they say that you must, first, deactivate the account, and that deactivation lasts 30 days or 12 months. While technically this isn’t different from the way Facebook and others work, the fact that they don’t allow you to delete the account is a bit annoying.

When you delete a Twitter account, you lose your username, but you cannot deactivate the account for longer than 30 days or 12 months, so if you think you might want to use Twitter again, you will need to log in to the account before the 30-day or 12-month period is over, then deactivate it again. After the selected period, the account is deleted.
