A few FAQ:

Q. I also forgot the password of the associated email account.

A. I am afraid, you are out of luck if you can’t access your email and if you haven’t registered your mobile phone. You would need to register a new Twitter account.

    • That happened to me once… I asked Twitter but they were of no help. So, what I did was set up a new account. I used the Android twitter to tell everybody about my new account.

      Not a good solution, but I couldn’t think of anything better.
