Permanently Delete Twitter Account

You can only have ONE Twitter account. It’s impossible to delete the old account without first deactivating it. Log in to your original Twitter account and go to https://twitter.com/settings/account. From there, on the left side of the screen under “Account” click on “Deactivate my account”. A box will pop up that says “Are you sure you want to deactivate your Twitter account? You won’t be able to sign in or do many things until after you reactivate your account.” Click Yes and then close out of all tabs referring back to Twitter. This is important! After this, don’t sign in to your old account, and then create a new one. The same username will be available so you don’t have to choose a different name.

I want to switch from one Facebook account to another how can I delete the first one? What are my options, please? Thanks! You can deactivate an account but it’s only temporary – meaning that when you reactivate it everything will pop back up like before unless you use the ” Download a copy of your Facebook data ” which allows you to not only download a copy of your data but permanently delete the account.

Hi Nathan, Thanks for contacting us! Yes, I see that you are correct…there is no way to fully DELETE an account from Facebook. That is unless you download your data first, and then DELETE the account. Is there anything else I can help with? Have a great day!

Thanks for looking into this for me. Is it possible to remove comments or pictures from private profiles and pages – as in deleting them completely? If so how do I do it? Thanks! Reply by Steve (Cranial Borborygmus)

Hi Rick, Yes, you can delete your own comments and photos as well as ones posted by others on your profile or pages. For example, I’m looking at one just now that someone commented on in October 2009, and it’s still there (invisible to most people). You have to use the page “Insights” and go to the tab Pages > Posts In this view, you can see the posts associated with a specific page. Click on Edit Page Posts to see them all listed in sequence. From here you can now delete individual posts or entire pages of posts. As for private profiles and pages, if you want to stop someone from viewing them then put them in restricted access mode so they are no longer visible to the public. Then you can delete them using the instructions in this article: How do I permanently delete a Facebook Page or Group? Thanks for commenting, and have a great day!
