Those looking to have the account of their deceased family members removed from Twitter have to follow a few steps to get it done. This requires letting the company know the account of the deceased person, a copy of the person’s death certificate, a copy of your government issues ID and a signed statement.
When sending a signed statement to Twitter to have a deceased family member’s account deactivated, the person making the request must include their first and last name, relation to the deceased person, current contact information, email address, the action requested, a brief description to prove the account belongs to the deceased individual and an obituary.
This information can be mailed or faxed to Twitter at a location specified by the social media website.
Users looking to have images or other content of a deceased family member removed can do so by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This can be done at the time of critical injury, shortly before or shortly after the user’s death.
