Deactive account automatically by API



I would like to use twitter management tools. But I am afraid of that, if hacker steal my auth token and used for it login and deactive my account. Is it possible?


Hi Bekir,

It’s not possible via the API to deactivate an account. If a hacker were to obtain your consumer key, consumer secret, access token, and access token secret they would likely be able to tweet on your behalf, follow or unfollow users, and other such actions but they would be unable to deactivate your account, change your screen name or email address and so on.


Hi Taylor,

Thank you very much
