How to reactivate a Twitter account
February 10, 2021
Twitter is one of the most popular social networks today. Since its launch in 2006, Jack Dorsey’s creation has become one of the most widely used across the planet.
It is estimated that this application has more than three hundred million users, and that an average of sixty-five million messages or tweets are generated daily.
This platform allows its users to publish texts with a short extension. These messages are known as tweets or tweets, and are presented on the home page of each user.
If you are one of the millions of people who have a Twitter account, you may be able to deactivate it by mistake. In this case you should not worry, since there are different ways in which you can reactivate it. In this post we detail these options.
How to reactivate your Twitter account
If your account has been deactivated for less than thirty days, just follow a few simple steps to reactivate it:
- Go to the website twitter.com/login or open your Twitter application from your iOS or Android device.
- Enter your details for the login below.
- Before proceeding with the login, you will be presented with a message asking you to confirm your wish to reactivate the account.
- In case you choose to reactivate, you will be directed to the main page.
One thing you should keep in mind is that your followers, likes, tweets, etc. may take a while to fully restore.
In case reactivation is disabled
It is possible that you have tried to reactivate your Twitter account and a message appears indicating that the reactivation process is disabled for the moment.
This is nothing to worry about, it is a temporary situation and you can try reactivation again after a few minutes.
If the number of days since the deactivation of your account is close to 30, then we advise you to contact a technical support agent.
If problems continue and you can’t reactivate your account
If you are having trouble reactivating your account, you should consider the possible reasons for these:
You have forgotten your access data
In case you have completely forgotten your password, you can contact the Twitter support team (link above). They will be able to give you the help you need.
After your account has been reactivated, you have the possibility to request an email for the reestablishment of your password. In this case, it is important that you use the email address associated with your account to contact the technical support team.
You reactivated your account but the data is not up to date
After reactivating your account, it is very likely that the data corresponding to your followers, followed or tweets will not be shown immediately. Don’t worry, the most common is that this information appears reset within twenty-four hours after reactivation.
If after 48 hours the information still does not appear, contact the application support team.
If you suspect that your Twitter account was hacked
If you believe that your account was hacked and also intentionally deactivated, it is recommended that you go to the guide and help page of Twitter. There you will find the steps you must follow to solve this situation.
In case your account has been deactivated for more than 30 days
If your account has been deactivated for more than 30 days, you will not be able to reactivate it. You must register again and create an account from scratch.
If you wish to use the same email address and the same username of the account you just lost, you must wait 30 days after the deactivation of your previous account.
