Why Snapchat Deleted My Account?

I don’t know. I woke up one day only to read the Snapchat account deactivation message. And when I first attempted to ask for my account to be reinstated, I was told to log in and cancel my request to have the account deleted. To be honest, someone else had hacked my account and completed all steps of self-account deactivation. But good enough, I discovered this before the 30-day gross period.
