A friend's son-in-law's friend loaded programs on to my iMac when new. Twitter was one of the programs. I trashed the icon, but where do I go to delete the program? Never Twitted.

Use AppCleaner to uninstall apps you no longer want.

App Cleaner could not locate Twitter. I also don't see it in my applications. Still I have a twitter update from the App Store...which I can't open as they want the original installers password to update.
I'll try to download twitter and see if that gets rid of the update, then remove Twitter.

If you go to App Store | Purchases what does it show against Twitter, if anything?
  • If you see [Install] button, then you can secondary-click and Hide Purchase - it won't bother you with updates again (well, at least that's the theory) ...
  • If you see greyed out [Installed] button, then App Store thinks you have it installed, and it will be showing you updates. In this case you might need to contact Support and request a reset for this purchase.
  • Same, if you see an error message:

Try using Reggie Ashworth's AppDelete. It has an option to find orphaned files. These are files left behind when an app is deleted. It includes things such as prefs files and the like. This may be why Twitter wont go away. Also if your friends son in law installed the app then he may have used his own apple ID to download it. This could be the reason you can't find it in ypur purchases

Successfully downloaded Twitter under my ID. I will use AppDelete to delete it. Thanks for help from everybody. Hope things don't get worse when...if...I hit 71.
