How To Get a Different Twitter URL

New Unique twitter URLSo you’ve decided you no longer like the Twitter user name you choose when you signed up for Twitter. Hey, it happens. A lot of the best names are now taken, but if you follow these instructions you can change your Twitter account name to something else – if it’s available of course.

  1. Login to your existing Twitter account.
  2. Click on “Settings” near the top right corner of the Twitter page to get to your account information.
  3. Click inside the text box next to “Username”.  Delete your current username.
  4. Enter a new username into the “Username” box.  What you enter will become your new Twitter URL if it’s available (no one else is using it). So, if you were to choose MyNameXXX as your new username, your Twitter URL will be “http://www.twitter.com/MyNameXXX”.
  5. Go to the bottom of the page and click “Save.”  Congratulations, you have updated your Twitter URL to something new.
