    When I go to SETTINGS >> APPLICATIONS >> MANAGE APPLICATIONS, Twitter is not displayed as an application. I would like to uninstall it from my phone but don't see how I can do it. Help, please! :)

    are you running a custom ROM? is so twitter is probably part of the system apps and you will need something like root explorer to delete it... search for how to delete system apps. to make sure its part of the system apps go to setting>applications>manage applications> then on the top click all applications... it should show up there...

    I'll take that as a no.....so I would guess you are not rooted.

    How did twitter get on your phone in the first place?

    Related to Facebook somehow...

    At one time I tried to join Twitter and linked it to Facebook. I can't recall installing Twitter directly.

    If you are running the latest build from verizon, it includes twitter. Unless you decide to root your phone, you cannot remove it.

    Yes...using latest DROID build from Verizon. I'll just leave Twitter alone and accept all automatic updates, I guess. Thanks!

    If the application is on social network, try turning on wifi and deleting it, or uncheck the box in the social network -> sync when only wifi is connected

    No problem, if you decide to take the plunge into rooting, it can be rewarding! There are lots of tutorials and plenty willing to answer questions. Enjoy!

    I will take a look at the "rooting" information that Tallica posted. It sounds interesting! Thanks, everyone!
