How to log out of Twitter on an iPod Touch

The latest version of iOS (6.1.3 as of April 2013) includes built-in Twitter integration -- this means you can sign into Twitter from iOS itself (enabling system-wide sharing and notification centre integration) as well as from the official Twitter app and any third-party clients you have installed. Signing out of the official Twitter app or from the iOS Settings screen removes your account details from the iPod Touch and any other Twitter applications you have installed.

Skill level:


    Logging out from the Twitter app

  1. 1

    Launch the Twitter app by tapping its icon on the home screen.

  2. 2

    Tap the "Me" button then select the accounts button (two portraits in silhouette).

  3. 3

    Tap "Edit" then tap the red stop symbol next to the account you'd like to remove. Select "Remove" to confirm.

    Logging out from iOS

  1. 1

    Launch the Settings app by tapping its icon on the home screen.

  2. 2

    Open the "Twitter" page and select the account you'd like to remove.

  3. 3

    Tap "Delete Account" then choose "Delete" to confirm.

Tips and warnings

  • Sign out from your account in the Twitter app and your details are also removed from iOS itself; in the same way, signing out from the iOS Settings app will reset the official Twitter app and return you to the sign in screen. You can keep your Twitter details stored in iOS and uninstall the official Twitter app -- to do this, tap and hold the app's icon, then tap the "x" symbol and choose "Delete" to confirm.
  • If you sign in to Twitter through the iOS Settings screen and the official Twitter app isn't installed, you'll be asked if you want to add it. This is an optional step. You can also manage your installed third-party Twitter apps from the same screen. Switch the app button to "Off" to sign out of any of these apps. Any third-party Twitter client you decide to install takes its cue from the iOS Settings screen when working out which accounts to sign into -- in other words, you can't add a Twitter account to an app without the account also appearing in the iOS settings page.
  • These steps have been verified using iOS 6.1.3 (the most recent release as of April 2013). If you are using a different version of iOS on your iPod, then the process may vary slightly.
