Twitter is a great way to share your thoughts, but it can also be a terrible thing. I’ve been deleting my account for a few years now whenever my friends need to reach me. If they don’t have my number, they can text me. If they don’t have my text, they can email me. And if I’m not responding, I might as well be gone.
How Does Twitter Works?
Twitter is a social network that allows users to send and read tweets (text messages) that are limited to 140 characters in length. Twitter currently has over 100 million registered users. According to Twitter, more than 200 million Tweets are sent every day. Twitter employs a simple design — a text box consisting of 140 characters with the option to “tweet” your thoughts. But what really makes the service unique is its built-in messaging system — a real-time chat system where users can connect and communicate with other users at a 140-character limit. What Twitter can’t tell you is that users can delegate their entire account to someone else and that somebody else could well be you.
Deleting Your Twitter Account
There are a number of instances when you might want to remove your Twitter account. If you’re a celebrity, a public figure, or find yourself in a very negative situation, it may be prudent to remove your account. If you’ve been the victim of hacking, the account is no longer your own. If you’re just bored with the service, you can most certainly deactivate it and never look back. Technically, Twitter is a platform, not a product. One thing that I think is very smart about Twitter is that they make it possible for you to delete your account without actually having to delete the product. The process is called deactivation.
Here are the steps to take to wipe that account away.
• On Desktop
— Go to your Twitter profile icon and select the settings and privacy
In the account tab, scroll it up to the bottom and click the deactivate your account.
Scroll down again and click the button, deactivate.
To confirm your deactivation, you need to enter your password and click the deactivate account.
• On Phone
— Tap your profile photo in the top left corner, and select the settings and privacy.
Then click the account
— Then scroll to the bottom of the page, then click “deactivate your account.”
— Then scroll again and click the deactivate button.
After clicking the button, you need to type your password, then tap the deactivate account button to be able to confirm your request.
Twitter is one of the most popular social networks out there. However, it’s also one of the hardest to escape. It’s easy to start a Twitter account, but it’s also incredibly hard to delete one once you get addicted to it — if you are like most of us, you probably have more than one active account. This is a critical point: if you are considering deleting your Twitter account, there are a lot of reasons to think twice before doing so.
With all the hate that social media has brought, it is no surprise that people are looking for a way to deactivate their accounts. But before you delete your account, keep in mind that it will be gone forever. Since Twitter is a key communication tool that a lot of us use on a daily basis, it’s only natural that we’d want to use it for other things, like keeping in touch with friends and family or researching issues that are important to us. Some of us keep our Twitter pages around simply because we are committed to keeping them. For others, they’re just a place to share thoughts and photos since Twitter limits us to 140 characters on a tweet.
Twitter is now an integral part of our digital lives, so much so that many of us use it as a primary way to communicate. Unfortunately, Twitter is also a major source of distraction. That’s because it’s an open loop, meaning that the content you see in your timeline is only limited by your imagination. While the “follow” feature helps prevent that from being a problem, you can still be overwhelmed with new content. If you feel like you’ve been spending way too much time on Twitter over the past couple of weeks, you can always delete it.
