Having an up-to-date email address attached to your account is a great step toward improved account security.
Note: Each time the email address associated with your Twitter account is updated, we will send an email notification to the previously-used email address alerting you of this change. For more information on these types of alerts, read about account security. In addition, we will continue to store your previously-used email addresses, and will use this information for safety and security purposes. You can access a complete history of the email addresses associated with your account by downloading your data through Your Twitter Data.

Confirm your email address
When you update the email address attached to your account, we’ll send you an email asking you to confirm the change. In the email we send, clicking the Confirm now button lets us know the email address is yours.
Log in to the email inbox for the address you just updated.
Open the email from Twitter inviting you to confirm your account.
Tap the Confirm now button in that email.
We’ll direct you to your Twitter account, and if you are not already logged in we'll ask you to do so.
Note: If you do not complete the confirmation process above, your email will remain in an unconfirmed state. This means you won't be able to take advantage of certain account features, such as requesting your Tweet archive or taking advantage of security features like login verification.
