Twitter age limit
Twitter requires everyone to be at least 13 years old before they create and use a Twitter account. If your child is younger than 13 and has created an account, it is recommended that you advise Twitter that this has happened. They state that:
“Our Services are not directed to persons under 13. If you become aware that your child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us here. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we take steps to remove such information and terminate the child’s account.“
If you suspect a child under 13 has an account and Impersonation (Fake) Accounts
Twitter encourages you to report accounts you think/know belong to someone under the age of 13, or if you think someone is pretending to be a child who is under 13.
If someone has created an account pretending to be someone else, report the account. If the account has been created in your child's name you can request for the account to be closed; you may be asked to provide photographic id (i.e. a passport or ZIP card) for the person being impersonated. Parents are encouraged to do this for a child by completing an online form; a link to this form and additional information is below.
Often people who create impersonation accounts on any social media site do so for malicious reasons. If your child does access age appropriate social media sites, encourage them to always use the report abuse button and block the account if another user is being rude or unkind to them.
