When you delete a Twitter account, it might have been a premature decision and you have changed your mind and want to reactivate the deleted Twitter account.

After all, you did post a ton of things and uploaded a ton of pictures. The good news is that you can reactivate a deleted Twitter account as we will show you in this  Twitter account tutorial.

Can you recover a deleted Twitter account?

Yes, it is indeed possible to recover a deleted Twitter account. Twitter still gives you a chance to do this as they know you may have a change of heart due to all the things you posted in the past as you can look back at them and feel sentimental. Also, you would not want to waste all your followers.

It is actually possible to make a new one when you don’t want to go through the process of recovering your deleted Twitter account.

The truth is the time it takes to recover your deleted Twitter account is much faster compared to making a new one. As a result, it would be best to just recover your old one and you can just change most of the things stated there if you want to spice things up for the future.

How to reactivate a deleted Twitter account?

First, you would need to click on the Twitter app on your android or your Desktop. After that, you can log in using your email or even phone number.

Of course, you will be asked for your password so it should have been something you should always remember.

When you input the correct data, Twitter will tell you when you deleted or deactivated your Twitter account and how much time you have left before reactivating it.

When you have decided to reactivate your Twitter account then all you need to do would be to press ‘Reactivate’ and your account would get reactivated. Of course, it would take some time before your old posts would be back.

If I reactivate a deleted Twitter account, will my tweets be recovered?

Believe it or not, your tweets and likes will come back when you reactivate your deleted Twitter account. It is going to take a few minutes or even days for the deleted tweets to come back though. As a result, it is important to be patient as everything will go back to normal in no time.

Can’t reactivate a deleted Twitter account

It is possible you violated some of Twitter’s rules so you can reactivate the deleted Twitter account. If that happens, you would have no other choice but to make a new one.

During the time you can reactivate your account, you will be asked for your password and if you can’t remember the password then you won’t be able to reactivate your Twitter account.

When you are given the option to reactivate your Twitter account, Twitter will tell you when you deactivated or deleted it. The social media platform will also tell you that you won’t be able to reactivate the account after a month.

Hence, if you wait too long before doing something about your deleted Twitter account then you won’t be able to reactivate it anymore.

Contact Twitter support to get help in reactivating an account

Twitter’s customer service team would love nothing more than to help you especially when you would want to reactivate your deleted Twitter account. Thankfully, there are many ways to contact the Twitter support team. The first is via direct message where you can send a DM to @support then you can just wait for their reply.

Another way to contact Twitter support is to send them an email. Their email is [email protected] even though there are a lot of claims that Twitter has many other support emails which means you can just send an email to them all as there is no harm in trying. There is no doubt they will reply to you as soon as they see your message.

There is also the possibility of reaching out to them by filling up their contact form. There are subcategories though so you must choose the right one. If your problem is not one of the subcategories specified there then you can have another Twitter user use his profile and fill up the form for you.
