Are you wondering how to reactivate your Twitter account and get it back after deactivating it?
As Twitter has millions of users, when someone deactivates their account, they will get a 30 days delay to reactive it back.
Otherwise, all the data of your account will be gone forever, also your username will get detached from your account.
Which may be available for use by other persons.
However, if you still haven’t passed the 30 days delay, and you want to get your account back before this time, it’s still possible.
So today, I will teach you how to reactivate your Twitter account in 5 steps.
How to Reactivate Twitter Account
To reactivate your Twitter account, then on the login page, add the email and password of your deactivated account and tap on “Login”.
After tapping on the Login button, you will get a notice on a new page that asks you to accept the reactivation.
So tap on “Reactivate” to reactivate your Twitter account again.
However, you may face some issues regarding the number of followers or following.
This is something that usually happens after deactivating your Twitter, as the Twitter server will save your data until it’s time to delete them after 30 days.
So when you reactivate your account, this data will get back.
Therefore, it can take up to 48 hours to get your data back.
1.Open your Twitter app
Then go to the login page to add your credentials.
However, if you are signed in already with another account, tap on your Twitter profile icon.
Then, on the new popup, tap on “Add an existing account” to open the login page.
But make sure you haven’t passed the 30 days of delay.
Otherwise, you may risk losing your account permanently, and not being able to get it back with your data.
Now if you feel that your account got hacked or compromised then you can follow the Twitter guide to get it back.
2.Add your login credentials
Now that you’ve opened the login page, type in your email address and tap the “Next” button.
On the new page, add your password and tap on “Log in”.
Now if you forgot your password or email you can request a new password.
However, if you get a message that says “Account reactivation is currently disabled” after tapping on login, wait and try it later.
Because Twitter can have a server issue that causes you to receive this message.
But if you are still having problems with your account, and you can’t reactivate it, you can request account access from Twitter support.
This is a forum page that you have to fill in order to get support from Twitter.
Note that if the 30 days of deactivation expire, you will no longer be able to reactivate your Twitter account.
Therefore, you have to sign up for a new account, and you can try to use the same old username that was associated with your deactivated account.
3.Accept the notice to reactivate your Twitter
When you log in to your Twitter account with your email and password without issues, you will get a notice on a new page.
In this notice, you will get the date of your deactivation and the expiry date of your account.
Tap on “Yes, reactivate” to reactivate your Twitter account.
However, if you see that you’ve passed the 30 days, it means that your account got deleted permanently.
But it’s not the end, you can try signing up for a new Twitter account with the same username that you had.
For example, if your old deactivated username was “Yakoben21”, you can try to get the same “Yakoben21” name again and check if no one else used it.

After reactivating your Twitter account, you can now take a look at what you’ve missed such as tweets, direct messages, and other things.
So take an overall look at your account.
However, when you reactivate your Twitter account, you may notice that your profile photo is gone.
