  • Any device with access to Twitter



1) How to Deactivate Your Account If you only want to remove the Twitter app from your device without deactivating your account, uninstall the app as usual on your smartphone or tablet. However, if you want to permanently delete a Twitter account, whether it's your primary one or a dormant duplicate, it's easiest to visit the website on your desktop browser and sign in. Click the three ellipses in the left-hand menu, choose "Settings and privacy," and at the bottom left of the "Your Account" menu, find the "Deactivate your account" link. Click the link, and you'll be directed to a final page explaining the deactivation process. Once you've read the information and are ready to proceed, click the red "Deactivate" button at the bottom of the page.

How to deactivate your account

You have 30 days to restore your Twitter account if you change your mind. If you want to download your Twitter data, including account history and activity, complete the request and download processes before deactivating your account. In "Settings and privacy," select "Download an archive of your data" from the right-hand menu, and follow the prompts.


It's essential to note that some account information, such as old tweets, may remain accessible on search engines like Google and Bing for some time, even after deactivating your account. If you want to erase everything, including past tweets, continue reading.

2) How to Delete Your Old Tweets If you want to eliminate all your tweets, it's not as straightforward as you might think. You'll need to use a third-party service like Tweet Delete, a free web tool enabling you to delete your Twitter history and set a timer for automatic tweet deletion after a specific period. Tweet Delete can delete up to 3,200 tweets at once. If you're a prolific tweeter, consider a paid service like TweetEraser, which costs $6.99 (£5.30 / AU$9.75 based on current conversion rates) for 30 days of access. While it doesn't offer automatic deletion like Tweet Delete, it's suitable for removing your entire tweet history at once.

How to delete your old Tweets



Alternatively, use Twitter's advanced search tool to find keywords in your tweets that you want to delete. For instance, if you tend to tweet under the influence, search for the word "drunk" and delete any offending tweets accordingly. If you've mentioned specific users in tweets you'd like to erase, use this tool to locate and remove those tweets. If you're on a socially-destructive roll, here's how to delete Facebook as well.
