Disable Twitter Account: Deactivating your account will “turn off” your account for up to thirty days, at which point it will be deleted. This is a great way to keep yourself from thinking about it, but protects your account for when you need it again.
Note: If you are having an account issue (e.g. missing Tweets, incorrect follower or following counts, suspicious Direct Messages or potential account compromise), deactivating and reactivating your account will not resolve it. Please refer to our troubleshooting articles or contact Twitter Support.
How to Deactivate your Account
- Click on Settings and privacy from the drop-down menu under your profile icon.
- From the Account tab, click on Deactivate your account at the bottom of the page.
- Read the account deactivation information, then click Deactivate @username.
- Enter your password when prompted and confirm that you want to proceed by clicking the Deactivate account button.
