How to Deactivate and Reactivate Twitter Accounts on iPhone

Using social media platforms like Twitter can be stressful, especially if you’re exposed to toxic feeds and negative information. Though you can filter the accounts that you’re following or the mute some words that you don’t like, it is inevitable that you’ll come across these kinds of stuff while using Twitter. Might as well deactivate and reactivate Twitter accounts on your iPhone. 

Deactivating your Twitter account might be beneficial as it can relieve anxiety over stressful matters that you’re reading on your Twitter’s feed. As you use your Twitter account over time, you might have seen a lot of negative Tweets posted and being spread on this social media platform. Your only escape from this harsh reality could be a deactivation of your Twitter account. 

After deactivating your Twitter account and you’ve decided to use it again, you can always reactivate it. If you’ve deactivated your account on Twitter, it doesn’t mean that is gone permanently. You always have the option to gain access again by reactivating it. 

Just be reminded that once your account has been deactivated, details such as display name, username, and public profile picture will be no longer viewable on other platforms. That includes, Twitter for iOS, or Twitter for Android.

Deactivating your account will also delete your Tweets and they won’t be accessible upon reactivation. Should you wish to reactivate your account or if it was deactivated unintentionally, you can use the same username and password as long as you’ll do that within 30 days from the deactivation date.
