so this is solved by going to the synaptic package manager and installing "account-plugin-twitter"

Wow, I was not even aware that the (null) ghost entry was a Twitter account but trying this method, indeed I could not delete it. Thanks! :)

My twitter account turned to null after I upgraded from 15.04 to 15.10. Installing account-plugin-twitter fixed that, but I still have another account listed as (null) which won't go away. I have no idea what type of account is was supposed to be though. Only clue it gives is an email address (hotmail). So could be anything really.

OK, I figured out the other null is for Windows Live. I don't see a plugin for windows live accounts.

Same here for the windows live plugin. Where is this configuration stored, so that I can maybe just delete it?
Ubuntu 16.04.
