The sad fact is, your first one, two, or even dozen attempts to sign up for Twitter might be thwarted because your ideal username is already in use. For those of you who created a username that you’re not that fond of anymore, there’s still hope! It’s important that your Twitter username reflects you and your brand, so choose it wisely. To give you a little background on what happened, I’ll share a bit of our conversation we had last Friday. All of your properties (Facebook, LinkedIn, Blog, etc.), and guest posts are pointing to your old twitter account. The second thing you need to do is schedule several tweets over the next few weeks letting your followers know of your name change. Set up a stream in whatever social media tool you use (I use Hootsuite, it makes it very easy to listen to everything), and track your old Twitter handle. Another important thing you need to do is to change the URL to your new name in all of your properties.


Anywhere you would have an account connected, you might have to re-verify your accounts, so the service recognizes the new URL. As you can see, changing the name of your Twitter handle is a lot more complicated than what Twitter makes it out to be.
The reason you want to do this is to re-direct anyone that clicks on your old name to head over to your new account. Both Keri and Kittie told me they thought Twitter re-directed people to your new name automatically.
And try to avoid numbers at the end, unless they have some significance to you or your brand. They may release dormant Twitter account one day in the future, but there’s no word on when, or if, this will happen.
While you still keep your followers with a name change, and  they can still see your tweets from your new account, they are simply conditioned by now to use your old name, especially if you’ve had that account for several years.
You won’t be able to contact every single person you’ve ever written for, or people mentioning you in their blog posts, in order to change the URL.


Send out one tweet saying that you have changed to another name, and add that in your bio as well. And since Twitter has such a short shelf-life for posts, you’ll need to this often, and for a long time, in order to get most of your followers to use your new Twitter handle.
They both mentioned that Twitter should make this process more efficient, and re-direct people to your new name.
This will make sure that anyone that finds your old Twitter handle will revert to your new name. Being a bit concerned, I followed up with Keri and Kittie on Facebook to find out if their Twitter accounts were suspended, or if they had deliberately closed them.
