Hello and thank you for choosing JUSTANSWER.com
YOu can use a Phone Number, or an Email address....or a Username.....for the Username portion of the Login.
When you click on the FORGOT PASSWORD ***** you then enter the username or email addresses or mobile phone number you think you used. Then, check all your email inboxes – twitter will send password ***** instructions to the account's email address.
WHen i enterd in your Username....it gave me a readout that this username is ***** ***** a YAHOO email account, and all it would show me was this:
Do you have acces to this Yahoo email account?
Can you contact them and ask them?
Just using some basic logical deduction, i think the email might be: ***@******.***
So you would just need the password (if the email is right) to be able to login.
Then you could ask Twitter to email you at that yahoo email, so you can reset the twitter account password......Make Sense?
Well....thats how Twitter expects folks to recover their passwords....Twitter HAS to have a way of verifying that it is your account. And the fact that SOMEBODY ELSE set it up from the begining only stregthens the fact that this is NOT your account.
What im trying to say....is that Twitter has NO idea that this account belongs to you...OTHER than a password. So how else can they (Twitter) verify that this account belongs to you?
Twitter needa a way to verify that this account belongs to you.....so you HAVE to give them SOMETHING.....otherwise...anybody could just ask for a password.
SO, what about a phone number......did the person who setup this Twitter account put down your phone number as the account holders phone number? Do you still have acces to this phone and answer it if Twitter calls you form that number?
Im sorry, but for future reference....have somebody HELP you create the account.....not do it for you. As you can see how horrible it is when you have lost all ability to access the account, or even change the password.
In the past if you lost the password...you were just screwed.......and had to create a whole NEW account.
These days there are additional features built in that CAN offer some password ***** but this is all setup at the TIME THE ACCOUNT IS CREATED.
SO if you were not there to KNOW or write down, or make some sort of note, about the additional security questions...then you are stuck.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news....but you can move on now.....forget about it.
Twitter will NOT close the account.....because its not yours......so it will just sit there until it times out for a lack of logins.
Please take a moment to rate my performance. Thank you.
