    Changing your Twitter username

    So, I am thinking about chaning my Twitter username. Twitter gives you the option in your settings. This will give you a new Twitter URL (User Name (Username) on Twitter).

    My only issue with this is that my current Twitter URL (Luke Kling (stickycarrots) on Twitter) has already been promoted EVERYWHERE. However, I want to rebrand my Twitter and give it more of a professional feel and I just don't think having the username "stickycarrots" will allow me to do that.

    So, what do you suggest I do? I can change it and then re-register the username stickycarrots and just post a tweet to follow my new username. Maybe that's the best option?

    Yes that would be the best option IMO also. After you register new 'stickycarrots' make it clear there about your change of username as well as on your old username. This should solve the problem I guess

    Don't. You could have the same thing I have. It could be that the page says 'this account has been removed' or something similar and that you can't re-register it.

    I thought Aquarezz would be removed from the database already, so I could try registering it again but so far it still didn't happen so

    I'd keep the account as it is now if I were you..

    If twitter figured out that you are using two accounts, they might disable the newer one. So If I were you I would just change my twitter brand name and let everyone to know that you are the former "sickycarrots".
