    I have a twitter account that I purchased from someone else, and I changed all the info (name, email,password) but now I'm worried that they can still access it from their phone if they never signed out. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?

    Goto your setting while on desktop for twitter

    Then click on APPS

    and delete the app that allows the phone to connect, and reset the password and make sure that 2step verification is NOT setup

    And maybe setup 2step with a # you own

    Yes, as long as you changed the password.. he'll be asked to input the new pw which he doesn't have

    Be sure to setup 2 step verification with your own phone number. Twitter will text you a verification code every time someone tries to sign in. It gives you an extra layer of security.
