How to Log Out from Twitter

Although it is very easy to log in to Twitter, log out can prove to be more difficult, especially on iPhone and Android. Twitter can be great, both for your business and your social life. However, using it is not as intuitive as you might think and, in fact, it is common for people to think that it is impossible to log out from their Twitter account. Well, keep reading this OneHowTo article to find out how to log out Twitter on your computer, mac, iPhone or an Android device.

Steps to follow:

If you are using Twitter on the internet as opposed to as an app on your mobile device and you wish to log out Twitter, do the following.

Click on your profile picture on the right-hand side of the screen.

This will open a dropdown menu, where you will see the 'Log out' option. Clicking on this will automatically close your account. You are now logged out from Twitter. This allows you to log in with another email, or to simply close your existing account on a shared computer. It will also prevent anyone else from posting tweets from your Twitter account.


If what you want to do is log out Twitter on your iPhone, simply open the Twitter app and go to your user profile. Once there, press the small jagged wheel next to your profile picture to open various options. Simply choose 'Sign out'.

Finally, check that this is the account from which you want to log out - be careful if you have more than one Twitter accounts open - and click again on the sign out button to log out from your Twitter account.


Finally, if you are looking for ways to log out Twitter on a mobile device and you have an Android smartphone, the process is only slightly different from the above. When the app is open, click on the three vertical points that appear at the top right of the screen and then select "Settings".

Once there, choose the account you want to log out from - if you have multiple accounts, make sure you click on the correct one - and you'll see the "Sign out" option. Finally, confirm that you want to log out and voila!
