You must first deactivate Twitter

While Twitter allows you to deactivate your account in the same way that Facebook and Instagram do, it works a little differently. To delete your Twitter account, you must deactivate it first.

To do this, go to “More” on the left side of the screen, then “Settings” and “Privacy”. In the Your Account section, you will see the option to deactivate your account.

You can reactivate your account after 30 days or after 12 months. If you do not choose the reactivation option, your account will be automatically deleted after 30 days.

When deactivated, your username and profile will not appear on the Twitter website or mobile apps. If you notice that your account is reactivating without you using the app, this may be due to third party apps that you have given permission to connect to your Twitter account. Be sure to revoke third party access.

What happens when you delete Twitter?

If you do not sign in to your account within 30 days of deactivating it, it will be permanently deleted. This means you won’t be able to reactivate it after the 30 day window and all your old tweets will be gone.

However, your information may still appear on search engines such as Google and Bing. You should contact the relevant search engine delete this data.

Also, if you still want to keep old tweets, Twitter allows users to download their archive.
