It is now officially confirmed that the world's richest man Elon Musk is taking over Twitter. Yes! Musk is buying Twitter for $54.20 per share in cash in a total transaction valued at around $44 billion. While this news left many of the Twitterati thrilled, others are less excited about the prospect of Musk running the social media platform. Musk promised to defend “free speech” and hence, the banned right-wing figures like Donald Trump and Marjorie Taylor Greene, may well be welcomed back. Some of the critics are even going to the extent of deleting their Twitter accounts. So if you too are one of those who are thinking of deleting their micro blogging account then here is a step-by-step guide on how to delete Twitter account.
