How to delete Twitter permanently
Twitter will first deactivate the account and will give you 30 days to come back if you change your mind. Once that’s over, Twitter starts purging your data from its systems when that’s done, your Twitter account will be gone forever.
However, if you log into your account before the 30-day grace period is over, you’ll automatically reactivate your account. To delete it permanently, you’ll need to start the process all over again.
