How to Change Your Username on Twitter
Changing your username on social media can be the breath of fresh air you were looking for. Perhaps you made a mistake when you first made the account. Or maybe you’ve just grown too tired of your old one. Whatever the reason might be, 5-Minute Crafts will show you the steps to do this on Twitter.
Step 1: Go to “profile.”
Step 2: Click “Settings and privacy.”
Step 3: Tap “Your account.”
Step 4: Select “Account information.”
Step 5: Click on “Username.”
Step 6: Change your username.
- Before your username changes, you’ll need to confirm it by clicking “Continue” on the pop-up window.
Bonus: the difference between “username” and “display name”
A username on Twitter will always begin with an “@” symbol. It’s unique, and it’s what you use to log into your account. It’s also what people use when they want to search for your account.
A display name, however, is just how someone identifies themselves on the network. You’re able to change it whenever you like by simply going to “Profile” and clicking “Edit profile.”
