Can I reactivate a deleted Snapchat account?
No, you cannot reactivate a deleted account. Once the account was deleted then the whole details about it were deleted too. This means that you will need to create a new account.
It is impossible to recover the deleted Snapchat account. When you delete your account it also deletes all of its data. You have to create a new account. Anyways, good luck :D
does deleting the account delete the story as well and anything in it at the time?
You can, just type into making a new account the same username same password and same email then click on the ticks once logged on which are your friends which are following you
