How to Remove Inactive Accounts on Twitter


When you first start using Twitter, it might seem smart to create a separate account for each of your blogs or online personas. However, maintaining multiple Twitter accounts is actually a lot of work -- particularly if you try to network through Twitter. If you're feeling overwhelmed by multiple account maintenance, Twitter gives you the option to deactivate inactive accounts. Be warned -- deactivating a Twitter account is actually deleting it and the email address and username associated with the account will be unavailable for 30 days.

  • Navigate to and log in to the inactive account you want to remove. If you want to remove more than one account, you will need to do each one separately.

  • Click the link for your username in the top-right corner of the homepage and choose "Settings" from the drop-down menu. This will automatically direct you to the "Account" tab of your settings.

  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the "Deactivate my account" link. Deactivating your account on Twitter is the same as deleting the account.

  • Click the "Okay, fine, deactivate my account" button if you are sure you want to remove the inactive account. Confirm you want to deactivate when prompted by Twitter.
