How to Delete Twitter Account Permanently

If you want to delete Twitter account permanently, then this guide is for you.

Twitter Deletion Process

Twitter doesn’t have the option to delete your account immediately. First, you need to deactivate your account which puts your account in the deletion queue.

Twitter will keep your data for 30 days and you can reactivate your account in that 30 days period.

If you haven’t reactivated it, then your account will be deleted.

But, here are some important things to note before deleting the Twitter account:

Don’t delete your account for changing the username or email address. It can be done within the settings.

I suggest you to take a backup of your Twitter account before deleting it.

Ok, we’ve gone through the enough details. Let’s go to the process to delete your Twitter account.
