Over the years I used Twitter only for job-related functions, specifically for extended school field trips. To avoid confusion for the parents, I created a new account(?) every year.....#specialtrip2013, #specialtrip2014, etc. Now, I'd like to delete every one of those old accounts(?) and establish a new Twitter account. I use scare quotes for "account," because I don't understand whether these are "accounts" or just different variations of my overall account.....in searching for "how to delete my Twitter account," I'm concerned that I may not be deleting what I should, and it could lead to problems later on. Any help appreciated!

Um.....that is the first thing I searched for when I started...."how to delete my Twitter account." As I specifically stated. I have a couple of questions/concerns in my post and I'd love for those to be addressed. I know how to find a "how-to."

Sorry, Twitter is confusing to me.........Are all Twitter accounts individual--that is, they are tied to an email address, so you could have, say, 10 email addresses/10 Twitter accounts......and they're all different? Or is there one overall Twitter account under my name, and deleting that account means I now have zero Twitter presence....and the other accounts are automatically deleted?

So in other words, I just go through and individually delete all the accounts I no longer need.....correct?

Correct ... but I think Twitter uses the term "Deactivate".

  • When deactivated, your Twitter account, including your display name, username, and public profile, will no longer be viewable on twitter.com, Twitter for iOS, and Twitter for Android.
  • For up to 30 days after deactivation it is still possible to restore your Twitter account if it was accidentally or wrongfully deactivated.
