Some users threatened to leave the site after the board accepted the $44 billion bid from Musk.

The Good Place actress and activist Jameela Jamil was one of the users who claimed to be serious about removing her account from the social networking site.

She said she would like this to be her last post on the platform. Best of luck.

Whether a mass exodus of disgruntled users or an influx of newbies excited by Musk's plans for the platform remains to be seen.

There is a rundown of the differences between deactivating and deletion of accounts, and what other users need to know about it.

You have to deactivate your Twitter account for a month before you can permanently delete it. 

The first step in removing an account is deactivating it.

First, sign into your account, and then tap your profile icon in the top left corner of the screen. You can either choose a 30-day window or a 12-day window.

What does deactivating your Twitter account do? 

This means that your public profile will not be visible on the site or the app.

What if I decide to reactivate my Twitter account? 

30 days is the time before your account is deleted. If you change your mind within a month, you can go back to the site or use the app on your mobile device. When you log in, a notice will pop up asking you to confirm whether or not you want to reactive your account. You will be directed to your timeline if you reactivate your account. It may take a while for your accounts to fully restore, however.

How do I delete my Twitter account? 

Leave your account as inactive if you decide that you're dunzo. Your account will be canceled after 30 days. Your account will be up for grabs by other accounts. You will not be able to reactivate the deleted account or have access to your old Tweets. If you want to download your data, you need to request it.

Keep in mind that if you deleted your account from the social networking site, you wouldn't be able to see any of the information that may have been stored by search engines. Mentions of your account's name in other users will still be included in the Tweets.

To ensure the safety and security of its platform and people using it, the company says it may hold onto some information. The internet stays on the internet forever.
