Twitter is a social media app that gives you the latest and fastest updates. A tweet can only fit 280 characters so instead of posting one tweet, some users create a thread of tweets. They can easily flood your news feed and you’ll get updated with all the drama that’s happening.

Scrolling down to find the important updates could be tiresome and our daily activities also give us less time to check Twitter. Do you think you need a break from Twitter? You can deactivate your account with these easy steps.
