    Twitter is basically my life and I've been hacked. Someone has changed my password and deactivated my account and I refuse to make a new account because damn, I had some great people following me. Does anyone know how I could go about fixing this?
    And I request y'all to keep me entertained til then. My heart is metaphorically shattered.

    Change your password by resetting it through your email?

    You have 30 days to re-activate your twitter once it has been deactivated so once you've changed your password it'll be normal again

    What is wrong with some people in this world, eh?

    As above, contact twitter. My dad forgot his password or something but he's okay now. He is blocked on twitter by Diane Abbott for banter :lol:
