I cannot access the app on my phone. I’ve tried to force close it, but when I try to open it again, it says “This app is currently not available.” I have no other apps that are causing this problem.
Someone suggested using adb but apparently I would need root access. And if so, how do I give myself root access? Would anyone know how to help me with either of these questions? Thank you!
I’ve managed to access Twitter, but I’m still unable to delete my account. It says “Account information has been updated.” And then when I click on the back arrow button and click on “Delete” it just takes me to the update page again where it says that I need a verified phone number in order to do so. Someone please help! :/
Just went through all of my security settings (yet again) for both Google Authenticator and Face ID. Now it appears that Twitter isn’t even showing up under the applications section anymore… My question is, how can I reset my password? When I go into Account Info –> Security –> Password, the link to reset my password is not showing up… I’ve read online that it may be a result of me using 2FA or making changes to security settings, but I’m really confused as to how to go about fixing this. Thanks!

We’re constantly evolving our security on Twitter and we’ve been working on a few things which may be causing some confusion for some of our users. If you are unable to see the link ‘Reset Password’ under Account Info > Security , it means that your account has 2 Factor Authentication (2FA) enabled and after making recent updates; those settings might have now changed . It’s quite possible that you’ve removed either Google Authenticator or Face ID from your security settings and in doing so, you’ve likely removed Twitter as an option to reset your password.
If you are still unable to locate the ‘Reset Password’ link on your account, please let me know and I’d be happy to take a closer look for you!

How To Delete Twitter Account Permanently
Hi Karen, first off congrats on making a decision about something that is very important to all of us. Like any major decision it comes with both excitement and stress. The unknown about what happens next can be scary but hopefully this article will give some answers and help minimize the stress by helping in a few easy steps. This article assumes you want all of your content deleted. If you decide you want to deactivate your account, this is a much simpler process and can be accomplished by clicking on the gear icon in the upper right corner of your account page then choosing settings and then deactivate .
What Happens When You Deactivate Your Account:
You will not be able to log into Twitter but all of your content still exists on Twitter. Any content posted after deactivation will remain active unless it gets reported or flagged for violation of our rules. Once it is reported or flagged Twitter may delete that content as part of our normal processes. Your followers list will no longer display any information about your account if they click on the menu next to your profile picture .
To revoke access provided to an app, just click the gear icon in the upper right corner of your profile page, go to settings then applications and revoke access.
How Long Does It Take To Delete My Twitter Account:
You will not be able to log into your account after deactivating it. If you choose to delete your account after 2 weeks no one including us could reactivate or retrieve any of your content . After that point you could contact us if you wanted help deleting specific things like old tweets from a specific time period but we cannot guarantee successful deletion. If you are wondering how long an individual tweet is stored on twitter, this article should give some insight into that question. We hope this helps answer a few questions for you about deactivation and deletion but please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help. Karen, you should have received a direct message from me on Twitter letting you know I’ve followed up with you here. You can also check out more of my articles here: https://kpcodima.com/articles/
Twitter said they “deleted” the offending tweet, but it still exists: I’m doing a story in the @HuffPost about what happened when I caught someone using #dogewallet to scam people for money via fake giveaway scams on twitter. This is a screen shot of one user’s tweets, which includes an embedded link from dogewallet . Unless you have access to my personal acct, this tweet should not exist – as it was supposedly deleted by twitter. pic.twitter.com/f3U82jRpWL — wyze_ninja (@wyze_ninja) April 23, 2018 So Twitter keeps deleting the same tweet over and over, but it’s still on their servers. Why is this? pic.twitter.com/OqgfUhRNzW — wyze_ninja (@wyze_ninja) April 23, 2018

I write a lot about how Twitter works as a platform and what it’s like to work here and be an engineer on the Product Team responsible for our safety systems . One topic that’s almost never covered is personal experience of other users on our products and what things feel like when they are being attacked by bad actors or harassed. I try not to bring up these experiences myself because they aren’t representative of Twitter as a whole and in most cases there aren’t easy answers to how things can be fixed. But, I know that those experiences are still important to listen and learn from. On Friday night, I decided to go out to dinner with some friends at the local food truck park here in San Francisco where we live. As is usual for these sorts of events, you bring your own alcohol (or just buy some) and enjoy being outdoors in nice weather with good company – all while enjoying the delicious cuisine from a variety of different trucks. It’s an environment where people generally feel comfortable being themselves and talking about whatever they want as long as they’re not bothering anyone else. In fact, I felt so comfortable on this particular day that when a man awkwardly approached me to ask if I was a virgin, I responded with “yes” and then asked him why he wanted to know. He said he thought it would be funny if someone who wasn’t a virgin tried to buy beer from the truck. It seemed like more of an attempt at breaking the awkwardness of his approach than any sort of malicious intent so my friends and I just moved on from the situation with a good laugh. So we’re standing in line for our dinner and this same guy walks up behind us again . First, he tries talking about Game of Thrones (we all watch GoT but not together). When that doesn’t work, he walks away but then comes back and is trying to get one of my male friends to talk to him about Game of Thrones and his favorite character. He’s either completely drunk or high on something but the interaction quickly becomes more surreal and uncomfortable than funny . One of my friends is laughing uncontrollably at this point because it just seems like a bad comedy sketch . Some other guy standing in line is egging him on to “make a move”. Another friend casually looks over and sees that there are two police officers across the street watching us all as we’re all having what must be one of the strangest interactions I’ve ever witnessed. At this point, he goes back to talking about GoT (we still love it!) and how he has earmarked some GoT episodes since there’ll be spoilers for future seasons when they start airing. We’re quickly running out of excuses for why we don’t want to talk about Game of Thrones but the police officers are still watching. After another minute or two, it’s our turn to order and he looks at me again as if I’m supposed to be the one in this situation who is going to protect him from embarrassment by talking about GoT . I now realize that his interactions with us aren’t even a real conversation where someone can choose not to respond – they’re an opportunity for him to feel like he’s being brave or funny by pulling attention toward himself when what he really wants is validation. He’s actually putting other people on the spot because he doesn’t have any friends so it feels more like performance art than something meaningful.
1. Go to Twitter.com.
2. Click on the “Profile, and settings” button,
3. Tap the right corner of the page.
4. Select “Settings”.
5. Click on the “Deactivate my account”
6. Link at the bottom of the page.
You cannot delete your Twitter account. To deactivate your account, go to “Settings and Privacy” then select “Request a Deactivation.” When you request the deletion of your Twitter account, the company will not remove any data from their website but instead queue it for permanent deletion.
To deactivate your Beme account, tap Account from the Settings and Privacy menu. Enter your password when prompted and tap Deactivate.
When a user deactivates their account, Twitter places it in a queue for permanent deletion. Within minutes of you deactivating your account, Twitter will remove your data from the website and return you to the login screen which states that your data has been successfully deleted.
Once you deactivate your account, Twitter will remove all of your data from its site. … You’ll be able to reactivate your account at any time provided it hasn’t been inactive for more than 30 days.
Tip: The main difference between deactivating and deleting a user is that the former can be reactivated while the latter is permanent. Keep in mind though, if you delete somebody from your account and then need to add them back, they will be added as a totally new user.
