After deleting the account, if you change your mind within 30 days, the account can be recovered.

Reactivating account

To restore/reactivate a deleted Twitter account go to Twitter homepage and log in with the username and password. After signing in, Twitter will post the reactivation message if it was successful. The account data like Tweets, Followers and Favorites can take a few minutes to fully restore in a reactivated account.

Note: Twitter is free to change it’s policies without notice so, you should read all the messages carefully. For example, previously it used to be 6 month of suspended life of deleted twitter account and now they have reduced it to 30 days.
