Change Your Birthday on Twitter – Computer
Most people are going to use Twitter on their computers, so if you need to change your birthday on the platform, follow the steps below:
1. Go to “Profile” on the left-hand side menu
First, open Twitter on your computer and look on the left-hand side for a menu. You’ll see multiple options there, including “Profile” toward the end.
Select “Profile” to go to your Twitter profile. That’s where you’ll be able to change your birthday.
2. Select “Edit Profile“
Once you tap on “Profile“, you’ll be redirected to your Twitter profile. To edit the information on your profile, select “Edit profile” in the top-right corner.
The “Edit profile” button is to the right of your Twitter profile picture.
3. Select “Edit” next to your birthdate
Once you select “Edit profile“, you’ll see a new page pop up with options you can edit on your profile. Scroll down until you see the “Birth date” heading.
Next to it, you’ll see the “Edit” button in blue. Tap on it to edit your birthdate.
4. Tap on “Edit“
When you select “Edit” next to your birthdate, Twitter will ask you for confirmation. You can’t change your birthdate too many times on the platform.
Select “Edit” again to continue.
5. Change your birthdate and select “Save“
This is where you can change your birthdate. Look at the “month“, “day“, and “year“, fields, and edit them however you like.
Then, under the “Who sees this?” heading, look at the two fields for “Month and day” and “Year“. Here, you can select who sees your birthdate.
In my case, the “Only you” is selected by default. This means no one else can see my birthdate other than me.
But if you want these details to be public, select “Public” or “Your followers” or any of the other options included there.
Once you’re done, select “Save” in the top-right corner of the window, and you’re done.

How many times can I change my birthday on Twitter?
When you go through the birthday-changing process on Twitter, you’ll be notified that you can only do this “a few times“.
It doesn’t specifically say how many times you’re allowed to change your birthday on the platform.
What we do know is that once you hit that magic number, you won’t be able to change your birthday anymore.
You’ll be stuck with the last birthday you’ve entered into the app.
However, I assume you can still change your birthday if you contact customer support and tell them to change it for you.
I recommend paying attention to the birthday you enter on Twitter as a precaution.
What happens if I enter the wrong birthday on Twitter?
Not many know about this, and Twitter doesn’t tell you about it either.
But if you enter a “wrong” birthday on Twitter, you’ll be locked out of your account. You’ll need to contact Twitter support to unlock your account.
But what is a “wrong” birthday on Twitter? You can’t use Twitter if you’re under 13 years old.
So, if you enter a birthdate that says you’re below 13 years old, Twitter will lock your account and say you’re not allowed to use Twitter.
They’ll unlock your account when you become 13.
However, if you entered the wrong birthday by mistake, you can still fix it. Twitter will ask for your ID photo to confirm you’re over 13.
Then, they’ll unlock your account and give you access.
