How To Check: How Old Is My Twitter Account

✎ Key Takes:

» You can find & look at the welcome email or the first tweet or simply locate the joining date displayed below the Bio section on the profile page without relying on third-party tools.

How Old Is My Twitter Account:

You can try the following methods:

1. From Welcome Email from Twitter

When you create an account on Twitter, they will send a verification email. If you have access to the welcome email sent to Twitter users when they first joined, you can check the date they created their accounts. To do that:

🔴 Steps To Follow:

Step 1: Locate the welcome email in your inbox or the recipient’s inbox.

Step 2: Open the email and look for the section that says, “Thanks for signing up for Twitter!”

Step 3: In this section, you should see the date that the user joined Twitter. It may be listed as “Joined Twitter on” or “Created at”.

Confirmation email

Step 4: If you don’t see the date listed in the welcome email, check the date when you received the message.

Step 5: If you still need help finding the account creation date, it’s possible that the welcome email was deleted or didn’t include this information.

In this case, you may need another method to check the account creation date, such as a Twitter account age checker tool or asking the user directly.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Can you hide the date you joined Twitter?

You cannot hide the date that you joined Twitter. This information is a part of your account’s public profile and cannot be hidden or removed. The date that you joined Twitter is displayed on your profile page under your username and bio, and it is also visible when someone hovers over your username or profile picture in a tweet.

2. Can you stalk someone on Twitter without them knowing?

It is inappropriate to “stalk” or monitor someone’s activity on Twitter without their knowledge or consent. Twitter’s terms of service and privacy policy prohibit using the platform in a manner that harasses, intimidates, or otherwise violates the rights of others. But by using third-party tools, you can stalk or monitor any social media account.

3. Can you track someone’s activity on Twitter?

As a regular Twitter user, you cannot track someone’s activity on the platform in a way that is not publicly visible. Twitter’s privacy policy and terms of service prohibit using the platform to track, monitor, or collect data on other users without their consent. You can follow a user to see their tweets, retweets, and likes in your home feed.

You can also view a user’s public profile to see their bio, profile picture, and public tweets. In addition, some third-party tools and services exist that allow you to track or monitor Twitter users. Still, many of these tools violate Twitter’s terms of service or privacy policy and can put your account at risk of suspension or termination.
