Reviewing your Twitter data can give you insights into the type of information stored for your account. It provides an easy way for you to view details about your account, and to make changes as you see fit.
What type of information is available to me?
Your Twitter data provides you with a snapshot of your Twitter information, including the following:
Account: If you are logged in to your Twitter account, you will see information such as your username, email addresses or phone numbers associated with your account, and your account creation details. You will also see certain information that you may have previously provided to us, such as your birthday and profile location. Whether or not you are logged in, you can also see certain information that we have inferred about your account or device such as gender and age range. You can update or correct most of this information at any time (your account creation details cannot be edited).
Account history: If you are logged in, you will also be able to see your login history, as well as the places you’ve been while using Twitter.
Apps and devices: You can also view the browsers and mobile devices associated with your account (if you are logged in) or current device (if logged out), and the apps you have connected to your Twitter account. If you see login activity from an app you don’t recognize or that looks suspicious, you can go to the Apps tab in your settings to revoke its access to your Twitter account. The IP location shown is the approximate location of the IP address you used to access Twitter, and it may be different from your physical location.
Account activity: You will be able to see the accounts you’ve blocked or muted.
Interests and Ads data: You can also see interests that Twitter and our partners have inferred about your account or current device. These interests help improve your Twitter experience by, for example, showing you better content including ads, notifications, and recommended Tweets in your Home timeline and Explore. You can also view any Twitter advertisers who have included your account or current device in their tailored audiences.
You can also access additional information about your account elsewhere on Twitter while logged in, including the contacts imported from your address book, your entire Tweet history, the apps you have given access to your Twitter account, and the Twitter accounts you’ve muted and blocked.
What happens to your information once you deactivate your account
- Deactivated accounts can be restored for up to 30 days after deactivation.
- If you do not log back into your account for the 30 days following the deactivation, your account will be permanently deactivated. Once permanently deactivated, all information associated with your account is no longer available in our Production Tools.
- Any questions on your Twitter Data can be submitted here.
Download an archive of your data: You can also download a machine-readable archive of information associated with your account in HTML and JSON files. We’ve included the information we believe is most relevant and useful to you, including your profile information, your Tweets, your Direct Messages, your Moments, your media (images, videos, and GIFs you’ve attached to Tweets, Direct Messages, or Moments), a list of your followers, a list of accounts that you are following, your address book, Lists that you’ve created, are a member of or follow, interest and demographic information that we have inferred about you, information about ads that you’ve seen or engaged with on Twitter, and more.
