    I taught for years and only used Twitter once a year for an extended field trip, to keep the parents informed with what we were all up to. I would do a new Twitter feed every year, so there are still a bunch out there.....also, twitter informed me that someone tried to log in to another old account. I'd like to just delete ALL of them....if/when I need Twitter again, I'll create a brand-new account. I believe each one is on a separate email account created just for that twitter feed......Any advice appreciated!

    If you still know all of the user names and passwords you can log in to each account and deactivate it. This will hide your information for a 30 day grace period. If you do not reactivate during the 30 day grace period, the information will be removed, but still available to Twitter management for 18 months. Your copies of any Direct Messages will be deleted but will be available for viewing by the recipient until they choose to delete them. More information in the link.
