The Twitter app does not have a built-in uninstall feature. To remove the app, you need to use the uninstall process of the device it is installed on. For example, if you have the app on your Windows 8 computer, you need to uninstall it from the Windows Start screen. Similarly, you can uninstall the app from your iPhone or Android phone using either device's uninstall process. Uninstalling the app does not inadvertently deactivate your Twitter account.
