How to Change Your Twitter Handle

  • calendar Last Updated

If you are starting a new brand, changing up what you have, or just making sure your profile is the best possible, choosing a new Twitter handle or display name might be what you need. Twitter allows you to change as many times as you want without affecting your follower's count. Check the tutorial below to learn how and why you should do it.

Changing your Twitter handle should be thought about very carefully. It’s not always in your best interest to change it as it can affect your following if not planned out strategically. Sometimes, however, it may be exactly what you need to get an extra boost in your following and engagement; or perhaps it is necessary to keep in line with your business or brand if it has changed its name or focus.

Whatever the reasons, plan out carefully what you would like your new username and how to go about it to maintain the followers you have and hopefully draw some others in.
