Leaving a social media network is the last thing anyone is thinking about when creating an account. However, more and more people are leaving social networks for a number of reasons. Twitter®, sometimes called the “SMS of the Internet”, is one that you may want to delete but don’t know exactly how to go about it. Below is a brief guide on how to delete your Twitter® account permanently. Take a read if interested.

Twitter® account deletion:

  1. Launch your Internet browser and log in to the Twitter® account you want to delete.
  2. Click on the “cogwheel” on the right side of the top navigation bar and select “Settings”.
  3. Scroll down to the end of the settings list until you see “Deactivate my Account” and click on it.
  4. Twitter® will ask you to confirm that you really want to deactivate your account. Click the “Deactivate” button.
  5. Now, your account is deleted.


  • Twitter® will remove your profile and tweets from the site. When people try to view your profile page, they'll get a message saying that your account doesn't exist. The company warns that "some content may be viewable ... for a few days after deactivation." Also, tweets and other content you posted to Twitter® might still show up in search engines.
