How to restore a deleted Twitter account?

Twitter accounts once suspended due to some illegal activities or suspicions, are hard to get restored back, but when you accidentally or knowingly delete your twitter account, there are chances for the restoration of the account, and i found it when a friend of mine deleted her account and wanted it back.

if you are trying to restore your account to release a user name or email address, we can permanently delete the old account for you. This will free your user name and email address, but your old account will be gone forever.

And regarding the restore of the account, here is what you need to do –
~ Send a mail to from the email address using which you registered at twitter, and let them know about your username and the restore request. You are added to the list, and after 4-6 weeks, you would get notified about the restored account.
~ Fill the tiny form with your username or email address and submit it. This can restore your account too.

Though emailing personally and requesting would be a better option.

Iam writing this article because recently my twitter account got suspended after which many friends sent out tweets to the @twitter @ev @biz etc because there was no reason provided for the suspension and we were all confused why the hell did this situation come. After few hours of this drama the account was restored again without any notification and my sizzler_chetan account was back.

  6. i dont think the restoring is gonna work for me

  7. Twitter’s account reactivation service is unavailable according to their site. It’s best to get a new account (and a new email address) or you can wait for the restoration service to be available, but, knowing twitter, it’ll be a long wait.
