Twitter won't sign me out

  • Problem
  • Updated 1 year ago
Quite simply, the "Sign out" link does not sign me out. Here's a video: http://screenr.com/afN

And guess what?

At the end of the video I thought I was properly signed out. I wasn't! After I hit "Done recording", I immediately refreshed twitter.com and was taken back to my profile page.

This has been going on for weeks. What's going on?

I'm having the same problem. When I click 'Sign out' the page just reloads, and I'm still signed in. The only way to sign out is to delete my cookies, but that's annoying. Help!

I have the same issues. There are some things I just can't do in a Twitter app, so I want to be able to go between accounts, but I cannot sign out. Quitting and restarting my browser has no effect.

Anyone else get the impression Twitter doesn't even monitor their Get Satisfaction site?

This just started happening to me today. Did you ever find out what to do. I cant use my other accounts because this one wont let me sign out. I have re started my computer and done just about everything I know. Are they working on this or WHAT!

This is happening to me too. Maybe it's a browser issuer? I'm not sure. Need a solution fast.

I tried deleting cookies but didnt work for me.
In the twitter website click home which takes you to your profile page, then click on your name in near your profile pic in the left top corner, takes you your profile again but your photo is enlarged, then click on the photo which takes you to your profile's settings (somehow :) ). Then in the upper right corner of page see your name and click the arrow then sign out.. it worked for me .. hope it helps for you too and hope i didnt confuse anyone :)

That worked for me. You need to go to the profile settings page and then the sign out link will work. :D

To sign out of Twitter, try this (no idea why it works, but it does). Click on Help (home page, left column, bottom panel), then on @support. You get a pop-up window. Click on your twitter name (top right) and you get a drop-down with SignOut in it - that seems to work consistently.

This happened to me on Firefox for the Mac. The best thing to do is to go to privacy settings for Firefox and clear all twitter-related cookies. That worked for me.

This appears to be a Firefox issue. I tried logging out in Chrome and was finally able to do it.
