Closing a Twitter account?

Can I close my Twitter account? It was political, and I am going into a phase of my life where I want to be a-political.

Os, is there a way to mass delete hundreds of posts?

Thanks

Instructions on deleting your Twitter account can be found here:

How to deactivate your account

I don't think Twitter itself provides a way to remove large numbers of tweets at a time, but there are a few utilities out there that claim to do it.  I've never used them, so can't recommend any, but do a Google search and you'll find references to some, like "TweetWipe" and "TweetDelete", etc.

delete all twitter posts - Google Search

Keep in mind that closing your Twitter account may not remove any content index in search engines for some time.
