There is no doubt that Twitter can offer a wealth of information, from breaking news to funny memes to lively debates. But sometimes it can also be overwhelming, addictive and simply unpleasant.

If you’ve had enough of the 280-character micro-blogging platform, it may be time to say goodbye to your account once and for all. Fortunately, if you know where to look, it’s easy to delete your Twitter account.

Is deactivating the account the same as deleting it?

No. Don’t forget to deactivate your account to let Twitter know that it needs to be deleted. Within minutes of deactivation, Twitter will remove your information from its website and place your account in a queue for permanent deletion.

30 days later, Twitter begins the process of permanently deleting your account from its system, which can take up to a week.
