Reactivating your account

Accounts are permanently deleted 30 days from the date they were deactivated. After 30 days, deactivated accounts cannot be reactivated. If it has been less than 30 days, follow the steps below to reactivate your account.

To reactivate your account:

  1. Visit on the web (reactivation is not supported on mobile devices).
  2. Enter your account username or email address, and your password.
  3. Once you click Sign in, your account is reactivated.
  4. You'll see your home page if reactivation was successful. Your account data (such as Tweets, followers, favorites, etc.) may take a few minutes to fully restore.

When can I use the email address/username from my deactivated account?

  • The username and email address on a deactivated account are available for use on another account 30 days after the account was deactivated. Within those 30 days, the information remains tied to the deactivated account to allow for reactivation.

I tried to reactivate, but it says account reactivation is currently disabled!

  • Don't worry, this is temporary and you can try again later. If it is close to 30 days from the date of deactivation you can ask a support agent to help you reactivate your account by filing a support request.
