While X (Twitter) is a great tool for businesses it can also be very distracting. Your business might be in a situation where it isn’t necessary to have a X account. It’s better to start over.

Although it is not easy to delete your account on X, it is possible. This guide will show you how to delete a Twitter account for a business.

Deactivating vs. Deleting Your X (Twitter) Account

Before we can get into the details, let’s first decide if you want to deactivate or delete your X account. There is a major difference between them. Your business X account will be deleted permanently.
