No, accounts that are deleted by the user cannot be recovered. If you intend to use the same username again in the future, then we recommend saving your Tweets via TwitSave or an automated service such as We Save Your Tweets before deleting your account. This means that even though your account has been deleted and will no longer appear in search results and lists of followers, anyone who has previously followed you can still see all of your saved tweets in chronological order just like they always have.
How long does it take for Tweets to be removed from the Twitter service? Can I recover them after this has been done?
We do not currently have an exact timeframe for how long it takes Tweets to be removed from our system upon account deletion, but we are working to improve our ability to process this information and offer it as a feedback option within the Help Centre (which is available in all our global languages). Our current estimate based on historical data shows that complete removal of your content may take up to 30 days. If you want someone else’s Tweet removed from your profile page or if they unfollowed you, then please let them know and they can request their own Tweet deletion via Help Centre .
How can I prevent my account from being hacked?
Be sure to use a strong password for your Twitter account: at least 8 characters long, with upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols. Don’t tell it to anyone else or write it down anywhere. Your email address should also be secure – make sure you don’t share that with anyone either! Also
, do not share your password with any third party applications you may be using to enhance or extend Twitter functionality. Don’t use your Twitter password for multiple websites and services. Finally, we recommend changing your password regularly (particularly if it’s been a year since you last changed it). You can change your password here .
How long does the recovery process take?
Generally, we aim to complete account verification within 24 hours of receiving the request. However, certain factors can influence this time frame so it is difficult to estimate exactly when an account will be verified. Please note that there are some restrictions for those who have previously had their accounts locked because of suspicious behaviour or other violations of our Terms of Service . Read more about the procedure at How long.

Twitter only allows people aged 13 or older to create accounts, so when an account is locked for being underage Twitter sends out an email containing a ‘Get Started’ button. To remove the age restriction you need to upload a government-issued document which proves your date of birth such as a driver’s license.
Inactive Twitter accounts are friends who have not engaged with you on Twitter within the last 6 months. Accounts may be permanently removed due to prolonged inactivity.
