I'm having trouble reactivating my account

Deactivated accounts can be reactivated within 30 days of deactivation by logging in with the account username (or email address) and password on Twitter.com. For detailed instructions on how to reactivate your account, please read this article.

If you're having trouble with reactivation, there are a few reasons why you may not be able to reactivate your account this way:

You forgot your login details.

If you don't remember your password, contact our support team and we may be able to assist you with reactivating your account. Once your account is reactivated, you can request a password reset email here. Be sure to contact us using the email address associated with your account.

You reactivated your account, but your following/followers or Tweet counts are wrong.

Some users' following/followers or Tweet counts do not immediately display their previous numbers upon reactivation. Don't worry! These will be fully restored within 24 hours of reactivation. If it has been greater than 48 hours and your counts have still not been restored, contact support for assistance.

You are trying to reactivate your account from a mobile device.

Reactivation is not supported on mobile devices. Please log in to Twitter.com from a computer to reactivate your account.

You deactivated your account more than 30 days ago.

Users have 30 days to log in to reactivate a previously deactivated account. If it has been more than 30 days since you deactivated, your account has been permanently deleted and we will not be able to reactivate it. You can sign up for a new account here.

You think your Twitter account was hacked and deactivated.

If you think your account was hacked and maliciously deactivated, please see our 'hacked' help page for next steps, including a quick way to contact us for assistance.

You tried to reactivate, but it says account reactivation is disabled.

Don't worry! This is temporary, and you can try again later. If it is near 30 days from the date of deactivation, you can ask a support agent to help you restore your account – just use the contact support link below!
