How To Remove Twitter Profile Pic

Removing a profile picture on Twitter may seem like a simple task, but it can be a bit tricky if you’re not familiar with the platform. As someone who’s had their fair share of profile picture changes, I can assure you that the process is straightforward once you know where to look. In this article, I’ll guide you through the steps of removing your Twitter profile picture, so you can update it or go incognito if you prefer.

Step 1: Accessing Your Twitter Account Settings

To begin, you need to log in to your Twitter account. Once you’re logged in, locate and click on your profile picture at the top right corner of the screen. This will open a drop-down menu. From the menu, select “Settings and privacy.”

Step 2: Navigating to Your Profile Picture Settings

In the “Settings and privacy” section, you’ll see a sidebar on the left side of the screen. Look for the “Profile” option and click on it. This will take you to the settings related to your profile information.

Step 3: Removing Your Profile Picture

Now that you’re in the “Profile” settings, locate the section that displays your current profile picture. Underneath the picture, you should see an “Edit” button. Click on it to proceed.

A window will pop up, giving you several options to edit your profile picture. To remove it completely, click on the “Remove” button. Twitter will ask you to confirm your action, so make sure you’re certain about removing your profile picture before proceeding.

Step 4: Saving Your Changes

Once you’ve confirmed the removal of your profile picture, click on the “Save” button at the bottom right corner of the window. Twitter will then remove your profile picture and save your changes. Your profile will now be picture-less until you decide to upload a new one.

If you ever change your mind and want to add a profile picture again, simply follow these steps, but instead of clicking on the “Remove” button, choose the option to upload a new picture or select an existing one from your device.


Removing your Twitter profile picture is a simple process that can be done in just a few clicks. Whether you’re looking to update your picture or go without one for a while, knowing how to remove it is essential. Just remember to log in to your account, access the settings, navigate to the profile picture section, click on “Edit,” remove the picture, and save your changes. Now you’re ready to explore the Twitterverse incognito or upload a new profile picture that reflects your personality. So go ahead, give it a try!
