    I use Twitter only once a year for a few days, to send tweets to parents at my school while we're all on a 3-day field trip.

    I have last year's account, but it still has all last year's followers and I can't delete them; Twitter is so frustrating- I don't want to block them, I want them gone, so we'll have only the current crop of parents following. I just finished clearing dozens of last year's tweets, one by one(!), and now I'm stymied. I would be happy to just dump the account and start a new one.....what should I do? Any advice appreciated!

    Thanks for your response. I deactivated the other account and started a new one by creating a new gmail address and going that route. Seems to be working fine. That was the easiest way to go.

    Thanks!
