Here’s how to delete or deactivate your Twitter account


Before you delete your Twitter account, consider whether you would like to use the same email ID associated with the current account to create a new one in the future. If you want to keep that possibility open, it would be wise to change your email ID before you go forward with deleting your account because it could get locked to your deleted account otherwise.
