I ended up E-Mailing directly, and eventually I got an answer. The answer is "No" there is no way to merge two accounts. You can delete one, you can rename one, but you cannot merge them.

If by merge you mean take on the name, tweets, messages, lists of accounts you are following, and so on of another account, then no, that is not possible. It is possible to rename your account so that all your previous tweets and other data will be listed under the new name (as it is the same account but with a different ID).

If you own two accounts then it may be possible to delete the first account and rename the second account to the name of the first. But I think twitter puts a "hold" on any account name previously held, even if the respective account has been deleted.

HTH.

Unfortunately, you missed the biggest reason most people want to merge accounts, and that's followers (people that follow you). If in your scenario each account had 2000 people following you, and 500 accounts overlapped, when you finished merging you should have had 3500 followers. Twitter suggests that you do exactly what you did but then they say to simply ask your followers to follow the other account. Something that takes a LOT of time and never happens completely (at least not in my case where I had several thousand followers).

A few months ago I deactivated my twitter account, never visited again within 30 days so I assumed my account would be gone, which is what I wanted. However, I've made a new account, and now I have two accounts under the same email address. I don't understand how this happened but I would really like my first account to be completely gone. Can anyone help?
