Hello loyal reader, Today article is centered on Twitter, I know many people who have come to me and asked me in the past. Hey Beejay! How do I change Twitter Username? Well, the same thing I told them is the same thing I will teach you.

On Twitter, your username, or handle, is your identification. You can sign up for Twitter by using your name or a variant of it as your username (assuming a person is not already utilizing it). For example, in case your name is John Ira, you may want to opt for a Twitter username corresponding to @johnira or @john_ira.

Twitter usernames more commonly appear with a @ sign earlier than the title. In view, that’s how you refer to other users on Twitter. However, whilst you’re making a choice on a username, the @ isn’t part of it. The only characters you should utilize are uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and the underscore character ( _ ).

Let’s go on then and talk about how to change twitter username.
