How To Change Your Twitter Username & Display Name

Basically, you have two names on twitter, your username and your display name. While the later is the one that appears above the username, and to the left of your username in the Twitter fed. The former is the name that appears in your profile URL. A username on twitter comes with a “@” sign.

So assuming you wish to change your twitter username or the display name, follow the below procedures to do it on your twitter account.

✔ Then while you are on the Account screen, you will see a text box to the right of Username. Just enter your nee username there. Twitter will check if your username is available. If it is not, you can choose another username.

✔ Note that your Twitter username mustn't be more than 15 characters. Additionally, you can only use alphanumerical characters on your username.

    1. So paul it's quit time to go back and edit that boring name you have on your tWeeter account.sorry that was a joke

    2. Don't make me send some of my boys to you.

  3. A minor editing needs to be done towards the end of the post.

    Check YOU CAN FOLLOW.......

    1. there are some mistakes dat r not noticeable so not all mistakes shud b pointed out... thank u

    2. You're right, it is not really necessary to point out every single mistake I see them and I understand the a mistake to ignore thanks anyway for pointing that out it shows that you are really reading this

    3. Don't get it twisted please. He had wanted putting up that place in a clickable format so that upon clicking the link, it takes us to his Twitter handle.

      So there is nothing wrong with editing it.

    4. You guys are correct he is the only one that always sees minor and major editing.

    5. No matter what you guys think, i will always point out any flaw recorded in the post but i wants react to any flaw seen in our comments.

      Do you guys think that this blog is only utilized by Nigerians, the simplest answer is No.

    6. I know some guys who are here basically to air out their comments without caring to read the article critically and I'm not gonna be dithered by your utterances most especially that of hassan.

    7. @hassan

      If you wanna start another war again, I'm gonna square it out with you big time.

      Let's assume that a post is on the N-power and the link posted for us to use in registering is wrongly put up by the OP, will you ignore it or you will point it out?

      If it's ignored, the aim of the post will be defeated.

      The OP had posted something pertaining to his Twitter account and it wasn't clickable, how then will you be able to follow him?

      Let no one get it twisted please.
      ONE LOVE

    8. Calm down Paul,just over look the useless comments and do your own thing,no war should come here cus here is a holy Land.

    9. You can't talk to sir mike and chairman etang it is only me you feel you can quarrel with.
