If you’re considering deactivating your Twitter account, whether to tackle social media addiction or for other reasons, you might want to read this post and reconsider.
First, a little backstory: I decided to take two weeks off Twitter in mid-November because I was wasting all my time in it. Simply logging out of Twitter on my PC and smartphone didn’t work, so I decided to deactivate my account and delete the Twitter apps. After a few days of back-and-forth tussle, I emerged victorious and stayed off Twitter for ten days. When I reactivated my account in early December, nearly everything was missing.
This is what I have learnt in the process:
Steps to Deactivate or delete Twitter account
Step 1: Open the Twitter account:
Go to the account website to access your Twitter home page. This should be done when users are already logged in into the account. If not then, click the “Log In” option which is visible in the top-right corner of the window. Enter your login details into the labeled text fields.
Step 2: Click on the profile image:
This is the option which is visible in upper-right corner of your page where a drop-down menu will appear in front of you. As instructed by Twitter Customer Service technical team, tap the ‘Settings’ icon and then, click on “privacy” option. It can be found in the drop-down list.
Now, scroll down and click the ‘Deactivate my account” icon appearing at your bottom section
Step 3: Click on the “Deactivate @username” option which will appear in the blue button after a while. However, the “Username” will be replaced automatically.
Step 4: Enter the Twitter password:
When prompted, users are requested to type the password that they used to log into their Twitter in the “Password” text field.
Step 5: Click the “Deactivate account”:
It will be displayed in a blue button at bottom-right corner of your window screen. Clicking on it will deactivate your Twitter account. But, still users will be able to log into their account any time in the 30 days to regain its access. Twitter will hold onto your account information for 30 days after deactivation, after which point your account will be gone with no chance of recovery.
